Where Does It Hurt?

The Junior Doctor is back! He's into his 2nd year of medicine, but this time Max is out of the wards and onto the streets, working for the Phoenix Outreach Project.
Fuelled by tea and more enthusiasm than experience, he attempts to locate and treat a wide and colourful range of patients that somehow his first year on the wards didn't prepare him for... from Molly the 80-year-old drugs mule, God in a Tesco car park, to middle-class mums addicted to appearances and pain killers in equal measure.

His friends don't approve of the turn his career is taking, his mother is worried and the public spit at him, but Max is determined to make a difference. Warned that miracles are rare and that not everyone's life can be turned around, those who can be saved will surprise him. Funny, touching, uplifting and wise, Max goes from innocence to experience via dustbin-shopping-trips without ever losing his humanity.
