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....

    The Best Medicine

    Well, you may not die laughing, but I was certainly in stitches and convulsed with hysterics, not to mention emotionally distraught, reading this diary of a junior doctor‘s training in the NHS. Apart from the side-splitting humour, it is an excoriating account of the manifold administration deficiencies throughout the National Health Service, once the jewel in the crown of Britain’s welfare society.

    The author decided to specialise in ‘obs & gynae’ (known in the medical worl

    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

    I came across Adam Kay when I went to see him perform his music and actually read extracts from what is now his book. I was struck at the time of the yo-yo of hilarity and heartbreak, joy and utter dejection in his narrative and the book does incredible justice to it. I am not one to get outwardly emotional when reading, but this book really shows you the hell that our wonderful NHS staff do to keep us running. You really share in Adam's high points, downright funny happenings and *Spoiler* prep ...more

    A petition for Jeremy Hunt (and every other politician and individual wanting cuts to the NHS) to read this book immediately. As brilliantly funny as it was emotional, distressing and heart-wrenching. We don't look after our health services enough, and I hope this book helps more people understand why that needs to change.

  • Rebecca Foster

    Kay practiced medicine for six years before leaving to write comedy for TV. These occasional diary entries spanning 2004 to 2010 are very funny indeed. He specialized in obstetrics and gynecology (“brats and twats”), and some of the humor is rather puerile but stays just the right side of tasteful. Although he plays his experience for laughs, he can be serious, too, showing how overworked and underappreciated young doctors can be – especially thanks to recent NHS policy. The incident that led to ...more

    This is Going to Hurt is one of my favourite books of the year. If you're all over book industry news, you'll know that it just won the Non-Fiction Award and Readers Choice Award in the Books Are My Bag Readers Awards, and I'm sure they are the first of many accolades! I know that I've been recommending it to everyone I know, young and old.

    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

    "Such an inspirational view of working in the NHS. The humour throughout gave it a lighthearted feel but it also very cleverly touched on a number of concerning issues. Very informative regarding medical vocabulary and procedures which makes this book extremely accessible to the general public! Would hugely recommend!"

    The book follows Kay on his medical journey as a Junior Doctor across different placements. It allow a very transparent view of responsibility, feasibility, and capabilities of a y
