Description:
Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and 'This Is Going to Hurt' intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands.

Hilariously laugh out loud funny but underlying it all is the stark reality of the stress & strain of working as a Dr in the NHS. Ultimately this Dr reconsidered his future following a catastrophic event whilst on duty on a particular day. The lack of support, the working conditions, Is it any wonder my local trust has problems recruiting. As part of the introduction AK advises "unlike a junior doctor I won't just drop you in at the deep end or expect you to know exactly what you are doing". Read his letter to Sec of state and note at the end of acknowledgements and thank you's "with no thanks whatsoever ever to Jeremy Hunt" And finally, page 262, "But promise me this: next time the government takes its pickaxe to the NHS .......Remember they do an absolutely impossible job, to the very best of their ability......" my utmost respect to every single one of them. 9* for the hilarity and anecdotes and a further one for being just amazing, a must read for everyone.
