Description

‘Extraordinary’ Daily Mail

As seen on BBC Breakfast

Horrifying, heartbreaking and eye-opening, these are the stories, the patients and the cases that have characterised a career spent being a doctor behind bars.

Violence. Drugs. Suicide. Welcome to the world of a Prison Doctor.

Dr Amanda Brown has treated inmates in the UK’s most infamous prisons – first in young offenders’ institutions, then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Europe’s largest women-only prison in Europe, Bronzefield.

From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm, she has witnessed it all.

In this eye-opening, inspirational memoir, Amanda reveals the stories, the patients and the cases that have shaped a career helping those most of us would rather forget.

Despite their crimes, she is still their doctor.

Reviews

‘Written with both humour and deep concern for the lives of her incarcerated patients. It’s a poignant, compassionate read, giving an insight into the complicated and damaged lives of some of the offenders … a thoroughly enlightening and engaging book.’ Mail on Sunday

‘A fascinating, sometimes funny, often gruelling account of working behind bars.’ Observer

‘Not only features startling anecdotes but also the more rewarding aspects of her job – the prisoners who sent her letters of thanks, the ones for whom there remains hope.’ i newspaper

‘eye-opening … harrowing … Though so many of the tales are unbearably sad, and some details quite difficult to read without flinching, frequent moments of hope and humanity mitigate what could otherwise be a bleak look at life on the lowest rung of society’s ladder.’ The Telegraph

‘All of the highs and lows of prison life, with heart-warming honesty and anecdotes to make your sides split and your jaw drop in equal measure … Amanda has filled her book full of funny tales that both she and the inmates have had a good giggle at.’ Sunday Express S Magazine

‘An enthralling account.’ The Sun

About the author

Dr Amanda Brown is a GP at the largest women-only prison in Europe, Bronzefield. Before transferring to work in prisons, Amanda was a regular NHS GP but gave up her practice because she disliked the way the job’s focus has shifted. She went on to work at a teenage detention centre, before moving on to Wormwood Scrubs and then finally to Bronzefield where she continues to work. The Prison Doctor is her first book.

    I came across this book on the kindle store by accident and I couldn’t put it down. The honest of their GP experience is incredible and the move into the prison system in wholly inspiring.
  • It’s just so badly written

    I really hate to leave bad reviews but this is terrible. I want to love it, the story line is right up my street, but the writing really lets it down. I’ve stuck it out to half way through and can’t do it any longer. Very disappointing
  • Great read

    Interesting and shocking, a great read. Only reason for 4 stars is that I wasn’t totally hooked (as in it wasn’t a book that I ‘couldn’t put down’) however it was engaging, honest and well worth reading.
