Life as a junior surgeon: Direct Red

The Friday Play on BBC Radio 4 was an abridged version of 'Direct Red: A Surgeon's Story'. A book written by London ENT surgeon Gabriel Weston and published in 2009.

I had not come across the book but I might just go and buy a copy after hearing the play. It was funny, poignant and brought back many memories of being a House Surgeon. Much of it was very familiar.

It is worth catching on Listen Again. Details of the book are below; it was published to critical acclaim. Gabriel Weston read English at Edinburgh before deciding on a career in medicine.
