This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor
Adam Kay Interviewed by Hannah Beckerman
Comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay gives a painfully funny account of why he gave up the stethoscope and swapped it for comedy.
Kay's diary was written in secret in the few moments he could find as a junior doctor working 97-hour weeks. It lifts the lid on what it is like to work as a junior doctor in the NHS in all its horrifying and hilarious detail.
‘Blisteringly funny, politically enraging and often heartbreaking . . . hilarious . . .there is also a huge amount of pathos . . . This is a book brimming not just with humour but with humanity.’ Hannah Beckerman, Sunday Express
Kay is a comedian and writer for television and film including Mitchell & Webb and Very British Problems.
