This Is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor

Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience 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. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands....

This Is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor Reviews

  • Karen

    Thanks to two longish train journeys I started and finished this book today. You can believe the blurb, it is hilarious. Properly laugh out loud funny. It's also poignant and a timely reminder of what a resource the NHS is and how it has been eaten away by politicians. You really should read this book, you'll love it. Unless you are squeamish or pregnant. If you are pregnant, wait till your baby is born then read it. If you are squeamish, read it with your eyes closed or a bucket beside you! Jus ...more

    I finished the book. It was a mostly irreverent look at the early years of being a junior doctor, then an obstetrician, until something catastrophic happens to a patient and the author turned from medicine to writing comedy. It was an excellent read, one good anecdote after another and rather than a review I'd like to summarise two. One concerns herbal medicine and the other the very serious topic of spousal abuse and how the hospital dealt with it in pregnant women.

    1. Herbal A woman had come to

    Have you ever read a book where you are laughing out loud every single page with a big smile on your face throughout and then choke up on the ending page? I do not know of any book where I have dropped so far down in so little time. Maybe a few Breaking Bad episodes but no book that I can recall. That is the beauty of (Dr.?) Adam Kay mic drop.

    I ended up googling junior doctor crises, reading up on how NHS is faring so bad after setting health care standards for rest of the world for so many yea

    Hi friends, welcome back to my latest review! This time I review the true story of a junior doctor on the front line during the NHS crisis.Adam Kay decided to go to medical school after school and thus began years of training and placements in NHS hospitals around the country. Adam started as a House Officer after many years he works his way up the ladder.

    This is going to hurt is the dairy entry's of Adams time with the NHS. This book will make you laugh, cry then laugh again as well as shocking

  • Emma

    A genuinely funny collection of stories from a former doctor; some so horrifying, surprising, or amusing that I had those hard-to-breathe-while-laughing moments, immediately making Audible clips and sending them to all my friends. It's not for the squeamish, be prepared for lots of blood, births, bad language, and assorted 'implements' stuck in places they really shouldn't be. Rarely have I been so impressed (if that’s the right word) by the willingness of individuals to achieve a memorable sex ...more

    Somewhere between silly and funny, interesting and boring

  • Basma

    Insightful and hilarious. I enjoyed his footnotes and am very happy that they were added as I was able to quickly pick up on the medical terminology used instead of having to look it up or having to miss the point. Sometimes his sarcasm irked me but overall I found it funny considering the topic. I always find medical books of this sort very fascinating and I think this is growing to become a genre of it's own that I look forward to delving into.

    Over a period of six years, Adam documents the hilarious, horrifying, poignant, banal, and heartbreaking experiences from his training as a young physician in the NHS. The book was not particularly political on the contentious issue of healthcare, despite the author’s clear preference for universal care over privatized care (which is pr
