Book Review: This Is Going To Hurt

Hardback copy of This Is Going To Hurt with a white doctors coat sporting a red spill that looks like blood

Have you ever wondered what it would like to be a doctor in the NHS? What it would be like to be on the frontline when there are so many uncertainties surrounding British healthcare? This Is Going To Hurt by Adam Kay gives you an insight into just what it’s like to be spat out of med school and onto the wards.

I don’t think anyone is under the illusion that being a doctor (in any specialty) is an easy job – but surely it must be rewarding?. Kay outlines this beautifully in the pages of This Is Going To Hurt giving us a look at diary entries from 2004 to 2010 as he trains in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Over the years we follow his journey as he climbs up the career ladder, moves from hospital to hospital and watches his social life go up in flames.
