This Is Going to Hurt

A series of supposedly funny anecdotes that felt like a podcast than a novel Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010 before a devastating xperience 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 This is one of those books that I keep getting asked about Did you read This Is Going to Hurt Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor and when I answer NO I am told I have missed out the most amazing book and you have to read This Is Going to Hurt Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor and now I can confirm I have read it and YES It did hurtI really didnt like the book it felt contrived and cynical and to be honest full of moaning I listened to this one on audio and the book was narrated by the author He spoke uite fast and I I didn t njoy the xperienceI read 30% and felt that was pretty much as much as I could take While I didn t D DAY Through German Eyes 2 enjoy it it has rave reviews and this review is just my reaction to the book I loved this In part funny and heartwarming yet also utterly heartbreaking and disillusioned I think this strikes a particular cord with me at the moment as the author was an obs gynae doctor and I ve recently spent time myself as an inpatient on such a ward This is the first book in a while where I ve read passages out to my husband while laughing out loud one minute and then had to hold back tears the next It s a full on rollercoaster ofmotions that also seems to very accurately describe what it s like to work as front line staff for the NHS I should know I do it Baroque Personae everyday too and we all have our stories to tell thatncompass the best and worst of British medical care It s one of my favourite things about the job hearing stories from veryone about that time a patient shoved a remote control up their rectum or remember that night shift a woman faked passing out I think it s what binds and bonds you all together The camaraderie Told with a liberal dose sarcasm and self deprecating humour the author manages to walk that tightrope between friend colleague and reliable narrator to a finely tuned T My admiration for other healthcare professionals is limitless and will continue to be so It s really the awful and gut wrenching stories interspersed throughout specially the last chapters that make you realise how much pressure and guilt our doctors are under And for little pay might I add Day after day night after night they fight to provide the best level of care they can without succumbing to sleep deprivation depression or worse There s a lot of motion here a lot of anger and sadness that s so hard to see yet is oh so common in the of anger and sadness that s so hard to see yet is oh so common in the freuent demoralised NHS workerIt s a very bittersweet read that I devoured in one day and I m sorry it s over It s one of the best memoirs of this kind I ve read in a long time and I loved following Adam Kay on
