The series and book it is based on are inspired by Kay’s diaries, scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends.

A teaser for the show shares: "At times hilarious, at times devastating, This Is Going To Hurt is a series following Adam, a doctor who we find wending his way through the ranks of hospital hierarchy - junior enough to suffer the crippling hours, but senior enough to face a constant barrage of terrifying responsibilities.

"Adam is clinging to his personal life as he is increasingly overwhelmed by stresses at work: the 97-hour weeks, the life and death decisions, and all the while knowing the hospital parking meter is earning more than him."
