Overview

The true story of an A&E doctor that became a huge word-of-mouth hit - now revised and updated.FROM THE PUBLISHER THAT BROUGHT YOU CONFESSIONS OF A GP.Forget what you have seen on Casualty or Holby City, this is what it is really like to be working in A&E.Dr Nick Edwards writes with shocking honesty about life as an A&E doctor. He lifts the lid on government targets that led to poor patient care. He reveals the level of alcohol-related injuries that often bring the service to a near standstill. He shows just how bloody hard it is to look after the people who turn up at the hospital door.But he also shares the funny side - the unusual ‘accidents’ that result in with weird objects inserted in places they really should have ended up - and also the moving, tragic and heartbreaking.It really is an unforgettable read.First published in 2007 when The Friday Project was a small independent, In Stitches went on to sell over 15,000 copies in the UK, the majority of which have come in the years since then. It has proved to be a real word-of-mouth hit.This new edition includes lots of additional material bringing Nick’s story completely up to date including plenty more suprising, alarming, moving and unforgettable moments from behind the A&E curtain.

Dr Nick Edwards is an Accident and Emergency doctor working in the UK. He kept a blog under the name of Angry Doctor for a while until his criticisms of the management of the NHS drew unwanted attention and for the sake of his career he removed it from the web.

Nope.  Didn't leave me in stitches.  Some stories are worth a chuckle, but every other chapter (and more) are political gripes.  Confessions of a male nurse is a much better read.
