Just picked this one up from the bestsellers in London last weekend. The Sunday Times No. 1 Bestseller. "Painfully funny" and "Heartbreaking" A Goodreads reviewer suggests:

I recommend that you buy it or borrow it from the library and then pick a nice, comfortable spot and just start reading, don't stop. Don't stop until you've read a couple of pages. Then when you're at the end of an entry that captures your attention, stop. Stop in order to think and reflect on what you would do differently if you were in Adam's shoes? How would you react to certain patients? How would you handle certain situations? This is how I went about reading it. I also found that the best time to read it was when I wasn't massively busy with anything. That way, I was able to concentrate and enjoy the book more than I thought I would. 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. All new members are asked for a one-time contribution of 5 euros at their first meeting. Grants lifetime membership benefits! These funds are needed to cover the $60 annual Meetup fee paid directly by the organizer, as well as any administrative fees such as photocopies, postage, flowers for visiting authors... and maybe a round of drinks now and then.
