Adam Kay is a writer, comedian and former junior doctor. He is currently adapting the book into a series for BBC Two while touring the UK with his highly acclaimed standup show. His forthcoming book, Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas , follows Kay through six festive seasons on hospital wards. This Is Going to Hurt has been a publishing phenomenon. And I think people are genuinely interested in looking under that particular bonnet: on television the vast majority of dramas are crime, medicine or sex. The NHS needs to be above politics. Any extra pound spent on the NHS is a good thing, whatever my views on the politician who announces it.
