'Very funny and frank' Independent

'Reads like Scrubs: The Blog … funny and awful in equal measure' Observer

* * * * * * *

The bestselling real life story of a hapless junior doctor, based on his columns written anonymously for the Telegraph.

IF YOU'RE GOING to be ill, it's best to avoid the first Wednesday in August.
This is the day when junior doctors graduate to their first placements and begin to face having to put into practice what they have spent the last six years learning.

Starting on the evening before he begins work as a doctor, this book charts Max Pemberton's touching and funny journey through his first year in the NHS. Progressing from youthful idealism to frank bewilderment, Max realises how little his job is about 'saving people' and how much of his time is taken up by signing forms and trying to figure out all the important things no one has explained yet — for example, the crucial question of how to tell whether someone is dead or not.

Along the way, Max and his fellow fledgling doctors grapple with the complicated questions of life, love, mental health and how on earth to make time to do your laundry.

All Creatures Great and Small meets Bridget Jones's Diary, this is a humorous and accessible peek into a world which you'd normally need a medical degree to witness.

If you enjoy Trust Me, I'm a (Junior) Doctor, don't miss the follow-up titles Where Does It Hurt? and The Doctor Will See You Now.

If you’re going to be ill, it’s best to avoid the first Wednesday in August.

The bestselling real-life story of a hapless junior doctor, based on his columns written anonymously for the Telegraph. Starting on the evening before he begins work as a doctor, Trust Me, I’m a Junior Doctor charts Max Pemberton’s touching and funny journey through his first year in the NHS, as he and his fellow fledgling doctors grapple with the complicated questions of life, love, mental health and how on earth to make time to do your laundry.

The junior doctor is out of the wards and onto the streets – but how prepared is he?

Now into his second year of medicine, Max is out on the streets working for the Phoenix Outreach Project, attempting to locate and treat a wide and colourful range of patients that his first year on the wards didn’t prepare him for – from Molly the 80-year-old dealer, to God in a Tesco car park. Max’s friends don’t approve of the turn his career is taking, his mother is getting worried and the public spit at him, but he is determined to make a difference …

Now in his third year as junior doctor, Max looks and sounds the part. But things are not at all as he expected …

Max is back in hospital, running between elderly care and the dementia clinic to A&E and outpatients. With an NHS under threat (some things never change) and the everyday drama of life in a big hospital, it’s not like television – this is real – and there are no easy answers, but The Doctor Will See You Now will give you hope that there are enough good doctors asking the questions that truly matter.
