This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor – January 1, 2018
Written by Adam Kay.
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.
