Product description

Review

I'd prescribe this book to anyone and everyone. It's laugh-out-loud funny, heartbreakingly sad and gives you the lowdown on what it's like to be holding it together while serving on the front line of our beloved but beleaguered NHS. It's wonderful. -- Jonathan Ross

So clinically funny and politically important for supporters of the NHS that it should be given out on prescription., The Guardian

Painfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable. -- Stephen Fry

Finally a true picture of the harrowing, hilarious and ultimately chaotic life of the junior doctor in all its gory glory, dark comedy and unavoidable sadness. A blisteringly funny account shot through with harrowing detail, many pertinent truths and the humanity we all hope doctors conceal behind their unflappable exteriors. -- Jo Brand

As hilarious as it is heartbreaking - and it IS heartbreaking (also hilarious). -- Charlie Brooker

From the Back Cover

PRAISE FOR THIS IS GOING TO HURT:

‘A blisteringly funny account of the lot of the junior doctor, shot through with harrowing detail, many pertinent truths and the humanity we all hope doctors conceal behind their unflappable exteriors’
Jo Brand

‘What an amazing book. I laughed so hard and often I nearly choked, but it’s also very moving and important. Everyone should read it’
Cathy Rentzenbrink

‘By turns hilarious, shocking, heartbreaking and humbling’
John Niven

‘Unputdownable . . . a spit-your-tea-out-laughing clarion call to stand up for junior doctors with all our might’
Shappi Khorsandi

‘Laugh-out-loud funny and heartbreakingly sad. I’d prescribe this book to anyone and everyone – it’s wonderful’
Jonathan Ross
