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.

I really enjoyed this book. It's often very funny, extremely sad in parts, but always thought provoking. It's a real revelation about what is expected of our junior doctors. Be aware, if you are of a sensitive nature, that the F word is used many times in this book, but don't let it put you off.
