Adam Kay in conversation with Dr Phil Hammond

This is Going to Hurt

‘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.’ Jo Brand

Scribbled in secret after long days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, comedian and former junior doctor Adam Kay’s book This Is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of working on the NHS front line. Kay compares medical notes with Dr Phil Hammond (BBC’s The News Quiz and Have I Got News For You), revealing everything you wanted to know—and several things you didn't—about life on and off the hospital ward.
