Présentation de l'éditeur :

Despite the headlines, actually the NHS has just had its best year ever.
Patricia Hewitt, Secretary of State for Health, eulogising to the BBC, 22nd April 2006
Despite what the politicians say, things have gone a bit tits up recently.
Dr Nick Edwards, A&E Doctor, ranting to his mates down the pub, 22nd April 2006
Dr Nick Edwards is an Accident and Emergency (A&E) Doctor working in the UK and a passionate believer in the NHS. However the reforms, political correctness and the Anglo-Saxon culture of binge drinking and fighting and the resulting A&E visits are a strain on his sanity. So, to keep up his morale, he began writing down his feelings a form of literary cathartic therapy the results of which make up this book.
From dealing with cardiac arrests and car accidents, to people with Arrest Avoidance Syndrome and others who haven t quite read the big red sign above their heads as they walk into A&E, In Stitches paints a vivid picture of what it s really like working at the sharp end of the NHS today. It s funny, it s heartbreaking and it s infuriating. It s also more informative than any government press release.
So join Dr Nick Edwards as he describes the frustrations and joys of working in the NHS. The traumas and tragedies, the patients and colleagues and most of all the successes and humour that make up life at the frontline of medical care: Accident and Emergency.
Note to reader: ever conscious of meaningless targets, the author would like it to be known that 98% of the stories contained within this book were written in under 4 hours.

Description du livre HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. État : New. 194 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The true story of an AE doctor that became a huge word-of-mouth hit - now revised and updated. Forget what you have seen on Casualty or Holby City, this is what it is really like to be working in AE. Dr Nick Edwards writes with shocking honesty about life as an AE 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 AE curtain.
