This is Going to Hurt By Adam Kay

This is Going to Hurt By Adam Kay


Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you.

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay’s This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn’t – about life on and off the hospital ward.

My Thoughts:

It is really refreshing to read something a little bit different. Here we follow the life of a junior doctor called Adam and how he progresses up the scales in his profession. He also shares some of the stories that await him on the wards that he visits. There are some really funny stories and some that will leave you thinking why? but there are also some really sad stories that may leave you to shed a few tears. A beautiful book that touched my heart.
