It’s wonderfulSo clinically funny and politically important for supporters of the NHS that it should be given out on prescriptionPainfully funny. The pain and the funniness somehow add up to something entirely good, entirely noble and entirely loveable.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 exteriorsAs hilarious as it is heartbreaking – and it IS heartbreaking (also hilarious)Blisteringly funny, politically enraging and often heartbreaking . . . hilarious . . . brimming not just with humour but with humanity . . .
