Amusing or unusual anecdotes from a doctor with some criticism of how the NHS is expected to function

This Is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor - Adam Mickiewicz

 

 

Adam Kay writes about his experiences as a doctor throughout his hospital career. The anecdotes are funny, some laugh-out-loud, others are just painful or unusual. At the same time, he describes the plight of the NHS doctor: overworked, underpaid and not appreciated.

 

This is an easy read and I finished it in just a few days. It really should be a must-read for NHS management and government ministers so that they can perhaps improve the lot of medical staff in our hospitals. Highly recommended.
