This Is Going to Hurt

Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor

The often hilarious, at times horrifying and occasionally heartbreaking, diaries of a former junior doctor, and the story of why he decided to hang up his stethoscope.

Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking meter. Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships.

Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on front line of the National Health Service in Britain. By turns funny, shocking, and incredibly moving, This Is Going to Hurt is everything you wanted to know - and more than a few things you didn't - about life on and off the hospital ward. And yes, it may leave a scar.

This edition features a new introduction by the author.
