Welcome to the life of a junior doctor: 97-hour weeks, life and death decisions, a constant tsunami of bodily fluids, and the hospital parking meter earns more than you. Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay’s This is Going to Hurt provides a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line. Hilarious, horrifying and heartbreaking, this diary is everything you wanted to know – and more than a few things you didn’t – about life on and off the hospital ward. .

Adam Kay is an award-winning comedian and writer for TV and film. He previously worked for many years as a junior doctor. His first book ‘This is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor’ was an instant Sunday Times number one bestseller. It has been translated into over twenty languages and was Sunday Times humour book of the year, Books Are My Bag book of the year and non-fiction book of the year, Blackwell’s debut book of the year and iBooks book of the year as well as book of the year selection in The Times, Guardian, Spectator, Daily Express, Sunday Times, and Mail on Sunday.

Tickets: £12.00
