Adam Kay: This is Going to Hurt

Adam Kay: This is Going to Hurt

Ninety-seven-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.

‘Painfully funny.’ Stephen Fry.
