Talk by author Adam Kay at Boughton House

Adam Kay

The best-selling author Adam Kay, who is also an award-winning comedy writer and former junior doctor, gave a talk based on the diaries he kept when training and working as a junior doctor in the NHS.  With wonderfully amusing anecdotes, he described life on the hospital front line – 90+ hour weeks, life and death decisions while earning less per hour than a hospital parking meter.

Adam’s book, This is Going to Hurt, has been in the Sunday Times best seller list for many months.  All profits from his talk have been donated to Cransley Hospice.
