This is Going to Hurt 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.
War Doctor For more than twenty-five years; David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world�euro;�s most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993; to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo; he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions; and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital. The conflicts he has worked in form a chronology of twenty-first-century combat: Afghanistan; Sierra Leone; Liberia; Darfur; Congo; Iraq; Yemen; Libya; Gaza and Syria. But he has also volunteered in areas blighted by natural disasters; such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal. Driven both by compassion and passion; the desire to help others and the thrill of extreme personal danger; he is now widely acknowledged to be the most experienced trauma surgeon in the world. But as time went on; David Nott began to realize that flying into a catastrophe whether war or natural disaster was not enough. Doctors on the ground needed to learn how to treat the appalling injuries that war inflicts upon its victims. Since 2015; the foundation he set up with his wife; Elly; has disseminated the knowledge he has gained; training other doctors in the art of saving lives threatened by bombs and bullets.
