Adam Kay: ‘If I had kids I would put them off studying medicine’ | Books | The GuardianT he morning I was due to interview Adam Kay I awoke with heavy flu symptoms and a painfully frozen neck and shoulder. I was in perspiring agony and, even before I got out of bed, utterly exhausted. But I thought: what would a junior doctor do? Of course, if he or she were suffering from flu, the correct answer would be: not go anywhere near a hospital. In This Is Going to Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor , hospital doctors, and in particular the author, are depicted as poorly paid, undervalued and grossly neglected professionals who are unfailingly willing to give up their own time for free to do battle with the health of the nation. So it was in that dogged spirit that I eased myself into a vertical setting, waving away the doubts of my wife and concerned looks of strangers in the street, and gingerly made my way to meet Kay at the Wellcome Foundation in Euston, London.
