28 September 2021 - 11:30 am-12:30 pm

This month we will meet online via a Zoom Meeting to discuss ‘This is Going to Hurt’  by Adam Kay.

Welcome to 97-hour weeks. Welcome to life and death decisions. Welcome to a constant tsunami of bodily fluids. Welcome to earning less than the hospital parking metre. Wave goodbye to your friends and relationships. Welcome to the life of a junior doctor.

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay’s This Is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line (with a foreword attempting to explain the National Health Service to a non-UK audience).

Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking by turns, this is everything you wanted to know—and more than a few things you didn’t—about life on and off the hospital ward. And yes, it may leave a scar.
