This is going to hurt, secret diaries of a junior doctor, Adam Kay
Cover
Author: Kay, Adam
Publication year: 2017
Language: English
Classification: 610.92
ISBN: 9781509858613
Notes:
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.
Audience: Teen readers
