Trust Me, I'm A Junior Doctor
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.
