The Prison Doctor By Dr Amanda Brown

The Prison Doctor By Dr Amanda Brown

Horrifying, heartbreaking and eye-opening, these are the stories, the patients and the cases that have characterised a career spent being a doctor behind bars.

Violence. Drugs. Suicide. Welcome to the world of a Prison Doctor.

Dr Amanda Brown has treated inmates in the UK’s most infamous prisons – first in young offenders’ institutions, then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Europe’s largest women-only prison in Europe, Bronzefield.

From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm, she has witnessed it all.

In this eye-opening, inspirational memoir, Amanda reveals the stories, the patients and the cases that have shaped a career helping those most of us would rather forget.

Despite their crimes, she is still their doctor.

My Thoughts:

I do love a different kind of read from my usual reads and when I saw this it piqued my interest. I really enjoyed this fascinating true story about a GP who works at some of the most Notorious prisons in Britain. We get an insight into what Dr Amanda Brown’s job entails and we hear the stories about some of the inmates and what life is like in these prisons. It is quite hard hitting stuff and very eye opening to read about. But it is a down to earth account of what Dr Amanda Brown has experienced so we know we are getting the real details. I found this a really good read and I have now ordered her next two books so I hope they are just as good as this one.
