Publisher's Summary

These are the extraordinary realities of the NHS frontline. From the historic junior doctor strikes to the 'humanitarian crisis' declared by the Red Cross, the overstretched health service is on the precipice.
This is a powerful polemic on its systematic degradation, and a letter of optimism to that same health service and those who support it. It captures with tenderness, a new doctor's experiences of an NHS at breaking point.

Critic Reviews

"There have been many books written by young doctors...but none comes close to Clarke's." ( Sunday Times)
"From the very heart of the NHS comes this brilliant insight into the continuing crisis in the health service. Rachel Clarke writes as the accomplished journalist she once was and as the leading junior doctor she now is - writing with humanity and compassion that at times reduced me to tears." (Jon Snow, Channel 4 News)
"A powerful account of life on the NHS frontline. If only Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt could see the passion behind the people in the NHS, they might stop treating them as the enemy, and understand that without them we don't have an NHS worth the name." (Alastair Campbell)

A brave, honest, heart felt view from the front line of the NHS . An informative insight in to how those in power have little regard for our well being and will lie and spin just to fulfill the lie. Life is cheap. The NHS is in crisis and beyond . As a nation we need to make sure we don't lose it and end up being asked for our credit cards before we are treated.

Beloved NHS

What a beautifully told story of true likeness of our current nhs. as a front line nurse I understand n have experienced the winter pressure beds... which to be totally honest can be very dangerous for patients. when the hospital is at capacity n yet ambulances are dropping of patient's, all so that A&E does not get charged a massive fine. This no longer safeguards the patients and defeats the purpose of NHS.
