IS THIS A TRUE STORY THAT WILL CAUSE HARM?
True stories are used in Yes, This Is Going to Hurt. The series is based on a collection of diary entries compiled by Adam Kay in his 2017 book of the same name.
The events in the book take place between 2004 and 2010 when Adam Kay was in medical school. Adam’s book addresses the political and social issues that plague the NHS and how they affect healthcare professionals.
When his name was removed from the National Register in 2015, the doctor-turned-comedian decided to revisit his diary five years after his resignation. Jeremy Hunt, then Secretary of State for Health, proposed a contract in 2015 that sparked outrage.
Overtime rates for work between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day except Sunday would be eliminated, and base pay would be increased instead.
Following these disagreements, junior doctors in the NHS in England went on strike on January 12, 2016, and again on February 10, 2016. Junior doctors even left emergency care and routine care on April 26, 2016.
To show his support for junior doctors, Adam decided to share his own experience with the system with the public.
This Is Going to Hurt, a nonfiction book, has been praised for its timely message, heartfelt stories, and hilarious punches. Many people enjoyed Adam’s candid stories, which showed the general public what doctors go through while keeping the entertainment going.
Sister Pictures picked up the television rights to this medical comedy less than a month after it was released, with Adam serving as writer and executive producer.
