Loved the insight into who the people working within the NHS are treated (0 more)
Same as the good, the insight into how we treat our NHS employees (0 more)
Good Read, became very repetitive towards the end
This book really did give me an insight into how our NHS is being run into the ground. A business (and that is what the NHS is) that is run by senior leaders who do not care about the workers. This highlighted this on numerous occasions and was really sad to see and hear. If people red the book who had been thinking about joining the NHS they may now have had a change of heart.

Adam's anecdotes and stories are fantastic, what some people do for sex :) is concerning.

I really enjoyed who Adam took us through a journey and a rollercoaster of emotions. It is a shame that him and probably so many others are leaving the profession because of being under paid and over worked.

At the end of the book it felt that the stories did become very similar and therefore lost its shock value. But it was however an interesting read and I would recommend to friends.

Humorous, insightful and fascinating
We all know about the NHS and doctors and hospitals, yet I'm sure for the majority of us that don't work in this sector, we don't have the slightest idea what goes on in reality.

Adam Kay's book is a fascinating insight into the NHS and the real working life of a doctor. It's ridiculously funny, emotional, heartwarming and also depressing to think this is the state of our health service. I dare you to read this and not feel anything. You can't say a bad word about the NHS after reading this (not that I ever did). I feel glad that Adam has provided such an insightful and thought provoking view of the NHS. I shed a tear when I reached the end and I would have quite happily read a lot more of his stories and anecdotes, they're fascinating.

A must read for anyone in the UK.
