Description

The true story of an A&E doctor that became a huge word-of-mouth hit.


Forget what you have seen on Casualty or Holby City, this is what it is really like to be working in A&E.


Dr Nick Edwards writes with shocking honesty about life as an A&E doctor. He lifts the lid on government targets that led to poor patient care. He reveals the level of alcohol-related injuries that often bring the service to a near standstill. He shows just how bloody hard it is to look after the people who turn up at the hospital door.


But he also shares the funny side - the unusual 'accidents' that result in with weird objects inserted in places they really should have ended up - and also the moving, tragic and heartbreaking.


It really is an unforgettable read.

About Nick Edwards

Dr Nick Edwards is an Accident and Emergency (A&E) Doctor working in the UK and a passionate believer in the NHS. However the reforms, political correctness and the Anglo-Saxon culture of binge drinking and fighting and the resulting A&E visits are a strain on his sanity.
