The true story of an A&E doctor that became a huge word-of-mouth hit – now revised and up to date.
FROM THE PUBLISHER THAT BROUGHT YOU CONFESSIONS OF A GP.
Forget what you have seen on Casualty or Holby City, this is what it is truly 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 steadily 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 atypical ‘accidents’ that result in with weird objects inserted in places they truly will have to have ended up – and also the moving, tragic and heartbreaking.
It truly is an unforgettable read.
First published in 2007 when The Friday Project was once a small independent, In Stitches went on to sell over 15,000 copies in the United Kingdom, the majority of which have come in the years since then. It has proved to be a real word-of-mouth hit.
This new edition includes a whole lot of additional material bringing Nick’s story completely up-to-the-minute including plenty more suprising, alarming, moving and unforgettable moments from in the back of the A&E curtain.
