"As soon as Adam Kay set foot on a hospital ward for the first time, he realised there's quite a lot they don't teach you at medical school ... His diaries from the NHS front line - scribbled in secret after long nights, endless days and missed weekends - are hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking by turns. This Is Going to Hurt is everything you wanted to know about being a junior doctor, and more than a few things you really didn't. And yes, it may leave a scar."--

As most of the jacket comments say, this book is hilarious. It is also an indictment of the way the NHS treats its junior doctors (and, presumably, all staff). But, buried in the amusement are terrific bits, like the fact that someone in the NHS didn't read Marin Wehlou's "Re-inventing the Electronic Healthcare Record" and exactly why they should have, and heart-rending accounts of absolutely good people going terminal ...

So absolutely stupid it was unbelievable. If this is how today's physicians act, boy are we in trouble. Thank goodness this gentleman left the profession.
