Review of 'This is Going to Hurt' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

"But promise me this: next time the government takes its pickaxe to the NHS, don't just accept what the politicians try to feed you. Think about the toll the job takes on every healthcare professional, at home and at work. Remember they do an absolutely impossible job, to the very best of their abilities. Your time in hospital may well hurt them a lot more than it hurts you."

I'd recommend this to anyone but especially people who belittle the hard work of NHS staff or are in favour of scrapping the NHS.
