THIS IS GOING TO HURT by Adam Kay
Synopsis/Blurb (taken from book):
“97-hour weeks. Life and death decisions.
A constant tsunami of bodily fluids.
And the hospital parking meter earns more than you.
Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.
Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay’s diaries provide a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn’t – about life on and off the hospital ward”
Devoured this book so fast that I even shocked myself, haven’t read a book this fast for a very long time. Some of the Diary entries are so funny that I was trying not to laugh out in front of my family. There were also some very sad and heartbreaking to read.
It was very shocking to read how doctors are treated in the NHS. I have been a patient and been in and out of hospital all my life and most of the doctors that I have met have been so cheery and happy, but I now know it’s just a front that they’ve learned to put on so their patients can’t see how they are struggling or feeling.
Definitely a real eye opener. A must read!!!
