  • Just finished The Prison Doctor by Dr Amanda Brown. I really enjoyed this book. I read This is Going to Hurt earlier this year and loved that so was really keen to pick this up as it follows a similar format. A fascinating insight into prison life and the challenges faced. I enjoyed reading about the different types of prisons she has worked in and how the challenges vary in each. I would recommend this book, it was a really interesting, quick read. ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5#bookstagram  #bookreview  #theprisondoctor  #books  #nonfiction  #newtobookstagram  #kindlepaperwhite  #booksofinsta  #bookworm  #weekendreads

  • Book post. These two books arrived today, one for me and one for the small boy. We got Monkey and Me from the library a while ago and he loved it so when I was ordering a few bits online I got it for his permanent collection - sure doesn’t it contribute to the ‘free postage’. Also, continuing in the doctor diary genre that’s so popular at the moment I got The Prison Doctor for myself. #tiredmammybookclub  #tiredmammy30minutes  #tiredmammy3books  #bookstagram  #TBRpile  #childrensbooks  #kidsbooks  #currentlyreading  #amreading  #MonkeyAndMe  #ThePrisonDoctor

  • Every now and again you read a book that opens your mind and makes you appreciate what you have. This book reminded me not to be judgemental and also how a kind word, a smile and a hug can make a world of difference. It’s a remarkable memoir from a remarkable woman who never gives up. Thank you Dr Amanda Brown for writing this and showing us there are always two sides to a story. P.S. To my friends: you’ll be crazy not to read this. #bookstagram  #books  #theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown  #reading  #holidayreads  #ilovebooks

  • Violence. Drugs. Suicide. Welcome to the world of a prison doctor. Dr Amanda Brown treats inmates in the UK's most infamous prisons. From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm, she has witnessed it all from her patients. 📚 I 100% should not be buying new books when I have such a huge TBR but I just had to buy this a little while back. This is totally my type of read and I'm hoping it's a 5⭐ #bookworm  #instabooks  #bookstagram  #bookaddict  #northeastbookstagrammers  #theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown  #nonfiction

  • Book 36: ‘The Prison Doctor’ by Dr Amanda Brown. I know what you’re thinking, yet medical memoir. I really love reading about people and insides of the demanding jobs I could never do myself, and this was no different. Brown worked in three prisons, including a long stretch at Wormwood Scrubs, after leaving her GP surgery, and this book is full of the stories about the people she met and the situations she had to deal with. Super fascinating, at times devastating but also surprisingly uplifting this was a great read. 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown  #prisondoctor  #hqbooks  #nonfictionread  #memoir  #professionalmemoir  #medicalmemoir  #bookstagram  #bookblogger  #bookinstagrammer  #happyreading  #bookish  #bookworm  #booksofinstagram  #londonbookblogger  #recentlyread

  • Review. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ . I know that a lot of people on bookstagram have rated this a lot higher and admittedly I have read this book (263 pages) in one day. I just felt this autobiography of a prison doctor lacked the grime and gore I was probably expecting of prison life and focused a little too much on the emotional and compassionate feelings of Dr Amanda Brown. I was hoping the book would reveal a bit more about how prisoners become patients within the prison environment, rather than how she formed patient doctor relationships within the system. Doctor Amanda Brown comes across as a warm caring women trying to make a difference to criminals, where as someone in her position might not. #theprisondoctor  #books  #bookreview  #bookreviews  #bookclub  #bookclub  #bookalicious  #bookstoread  #bookaddicted

  • 5 ⭐️ I’m not going to write a long review for this one as it’s all true, so no storyline or characters and not much to comment on. I absolutely loved this one. It was really interesting to read about a Prison Doctor, as it’s a topic I haven’t read about before. I like that so much of Dr Amanda Brown’s work life was covered, and you really learn a lot about the prison life. This is quite an emotional book and I definitely got upset at some parts. However, I also laughed at other parts. A very quick read that I devoured in about 3 hours. Didn’t want to put it down! 👩🏻‍⚕️ #bookstagram  #bookworm  #booknerd  #booklover  #bibliophile  #booksofinstagram  #bookreview  #readersofinstagram  #whatjodiereviews  #theprisondoctor

  • My 73rd #Read  of 2019 was: 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚#ThePrisonDoctor  By#DrAmandaBrown  Read on: 16 August 2019 Rated it ✴✴✴✴3/4 This was fascinating! It was also infuriating, humbling and at times heartbreaking. The amount of differences shown in this book between being a GP within a community and being the doctor in a prison surprised me. Especially the difficulties experienced when trying to get a prisoner to hospital. This book reminded me that while we like to think of people who have been to prison as evil that while there is genuinely evil people in prison the majority of people are just like us who have just been down on their luck, been abused or attacked and had to turn to the wrong side of the law to protect themselves and/or their children the best they can. The stories in this book are a mix of heartbreaking, horrific, tragic and heartwarming and more than worth the read if you don't mind graphic details of prison life. 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚📚#2019  #Bibliophile  #Books  #Bookstagram  #ReadersOfInstagram  #Reviews  #ReviewsRandomness  #Scottish

  • ⭐️⭐️ review ⭐️⭐️#theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown  An insight into the life of a prison doctor, honest accounts and hard to read at times... but the genuine love for her job is clear in this book, all the stuff she has seen and dealt with yet she still gets up everyday and goes back to work (while also raising her own family) the shifts seem to last hours, I felt exhausted for her in some parts! The first two stages of the books we are in two male prisons, the last part we move to a woman’s prison where doctor Amanda brown is still working now .... if you liked wentworth I really think you’d like this book!

  • I love reading about what drives other people. But this sadly didn’t hit the nail on the head. After utterly adoring This Is Going to Hurt (I mean who didn’t?!) I was hoping for lots of medical detail and interesting cases. In reality I felt that it focused a lot more on how the author coped with working in prisons and the sad background as to why lots of people end up in prison in the first place. The work I do meant that I didn’t find any of this surprising as I already have insight into that world. So I was disappointed, I wanted something from this book that it wasn’t offering and I totally appreciate that what drives Dr Amanda Brown is not the medical work but the stories. So I reckon as long as you don’t go in expecting a book with a medical focus you might really enjoy this! My only other quibble is that there are whole conversations in here. Obviously these can’t be remembered word for word so a bit like The Secret Teacher I suspect elements of this are fictionalised which I don’t love. And the writing generally is pretty average. ⭐️⭐️💫 (5/10 from me). Having said all that I read it in a day (today, lots of commuting!) Has anyone else read this? Has a book ever given you huge appreciation for what someone else does? Love, Tash 💕 #girlswhoreadaround  #theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown

In reality I felt that it focused a lot more on how the author coped with working in prisons and the sad background as to why lots of people end up in prison in the first place. The work I do meant that I didn’t find any of this surprising as I already have insight into that world. So I was disappointed, I wanted something from this book that it wasn’t offering and I totally appreciate that what drives Dr Amanda Brown is not the medical work but the stories. So I reckon as long as you don’t go in expecting a book with a medical focus you might really enjoy this! My only other quibble is that there are whole conversations in here. Obviously these can’t be remembered word for word so a bit like The Secret Teacher I suspect elements of this are fictionalised which I don’t love. And the writing generally is pretty average. ⭐️⭐️💫 (5/10 from me). Having said all that I read it in a day (today, lots of commuting!) Has anyone else read this? Has a book ever given you huge appreciation for what someone else does? Love, Tash 💕 #girlswhoreadaround  #theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown

  • Title: The Prison Doctor Author: Doctor Amanda Brown Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Summary: this is the book of how Dr Amanda Brown went from being your everyday GP to working in some of the UK’s most notorious prisons. She tell the story of some of the people she has met and some problems she has encountered. She explained how she copes and what she was thinking throughout her traumas and incidents. My views: -the description of some of the traumatic and heartbreaking things that happens anew deceived well and in great detail. I cried at least twice reading about the hardships of some of her patients. -the book was interesting and later out well, her life and experience is inspiring. -Her outlook on life and why she’s a GP is really heart warming! - it was a little info dumpy in parts, it was as if some of the facts as been copied and pasted from a website rather then bing explained by her, it had a slightly robotic tones in these parts. -the writing is pretty meh, it’s obvious that she has not written a book before the use of said and asked began to annoy me by the end of the book as it seemed to be the only way she would express how her interactions went. A I really love how happy she is to explain and share her emotions even when they aren’t ones that show her in the best light because they are honest which is very respectable I feel. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes none fiction and has an interest in medical practices and or prisons Tags~ #theprisondoctor  #dramandabrown  #prison  #gp  #nonfictionbooks  #paperback  #reading  #booksofinsta  #bookstagram  #bookshloriousbooks

  • As a huge fan of true crime & prison books this was a must read for me. An unchallenging but insightful read into the medical profession behind the scenes in the British prison service. Dr Amanda Brown writes brilliantly and candidly about her experiences (so far) and tells the stories of inmates she has dealt with. Some scenes could be upsetting for some as it hits on domestic violence, sexual abuse and drugs but it was amazing to read something so honest and Frank from someone who us on the frontline of our prison statement. A true eye opening and thought provoking memoir which is also unsentimental in the way a prison doctor (or any doctor I suppose) has to be. Harrowing at times but it very quickly moves on to the next subject, next patient. You can tell that Dr Brown has literally written it down as she remembers it which I really liked, no pretence or fillers to bulk it out, just hard hitting true facts and emotions. Thanks to netgalley and HQ Stories for the ARC. 4* PUBLICATION DATE 13th JUNE 2019#bookreview  #bookreviewer  #honestopinion  #netgalley  #arc  #bookclub  #bookshelf  #reading  #booksofinstagram  #instabook  #instaread  #bookreviews  #bookworm  #dramandabrown  #theprisondoctor

  • 📚📚 REVIEW📚📚⠀ ⠀ Title - Prison Doctor ⠀ Author - Dr Amanda Brown. ⠀ Genre - Society/Non-fiction. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Synopsis ⠀ Violence, Drugs, suicide. Welcome to the world of a prison doctor. ⠀ ⠀ Dr Amanda Brown treats inmates in the UK’s most infamous prisons. From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self harm, she has witnessed it all from her patients. ⠀ Despite their crimes, she is still their doctor. ⠀ ⠀ 📚My thoughts. ⠀ ⠀ I love non -fiction and true crime books. I reserved this months in advance from the library. I eagerly awaited its arrival. And I couldn’t wait to get a hold of it when the email arrived, announcing that it was FINALLY mine to read. ⠀ ⠀ I read this in about an hour and arghhh. I wanted to like this. I expected to like this. I DID NOT LIKE THIS. ⠀ This was an easy read. No real depth or substance and I finished it in about an hour. My main issue was that the Dr (who I’m sure is lovely) spent the majority of the book telling us how loved she is. By her patients. By the prisoners and by all. She seemed consumed with her own ego and wanting to make a difference which read as Cliche and or naivety at times. I became frustrated at the Dr “breaking into tears for the patients” every other page. ⠀ ⠀ It may have been the writing style, it may be that I work with hugely vulnerable and dangerous people myself in my day job so my views might be shaped by that. But I just wanted to fling this at the wall really. ⠀ ⠀ 📚Summary ⠀ So in essence. It’s an easy read. Little substance or analysis. If that’s your thang then you may like it. Lots seem to, if you consider Amazon reviews. It just wasn’t for me. ⠀ ⠀ 2/5 🌟#bookstagram  #theprisondoctor  #notforme  #ilovetoread  #librarybook  #ireadeverythingandanything  #lovetoread  #booksofinsta  #booknerdigan  #whattoreadnext

  • A wonderfully heartfelt autobiography written by a GP, whose frustration with the changing healthcare system caused her to uproot from the surgery she'd built from the ground up, leading to a huge career change. Dr Brown tells us of her experiences as a doctor in some of the UK's most notorious prisons working with the needs of the inmates. I found this a really enlightening and emotional read, full of humour and drama, yet there is a sense of privilege at sharing the vulnerabilities of these people and their life experiences. So many people convicted as criminals are often victims themselves and you can feel her compassion and pride towards each patient, no matter what their crime. I was proud to read and experience the strength of Dr Brown as she stood up for what she believed in in our healthcare system, didn't let profits sway her away from treating patients properly, then turned to help those that most would turn away from. As a fellow healthcare professional, we experience the same frustrations as nurses and it gave me a real glow to follow the path she has taken. Some of the content could be described as triggering but these are real life accounts of people in our prisons and I feel it's important to explore what leads people to such extremes and highlight what happens to people, especially females, still to this day. I couldn't recommend this book enough. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟#dramandabrown  #prisondoctor  #theprisondoctor  #prison  #doctor  #review  #bibliophile  #bookaddict  #bookstagram  #booksofinstagram  #bookish  #bookreview  #bookishlove  #booksofig  #books  #booknerdigans  #bookphoto  #bookgram  #book  #bookstagrammer  #bookphotography  #booksbooksbooks  #bookreviewoldandnew  #booklover  #bookworm  #bookblogger  #bookcommunity  #bookaholic  #booknerd

This quick read has definitely brought my attention to a forgotten route in the field of healthcare. Dr Brown let’s the stories speak for themselves as she describes her time working at one of Britain’s most dangerous prison’s.

  • BOOK REVIEW: 5 stars Wow, what a book! I'm probably not the only one that has never really thought about all the different staff in Prisons. It never occurred to me that there is full time health professionals in each Prison. Amanda Brown is obviously a very caring person that is sympathetic, emotional and has empathy for other people and their situation. What I loved most about her was her lack of judgement. There wasn't an inch of judgement in this book and it made for such an eye opening and interesting read. Her writing was good and we really got a sense of the atmosphere in each Prison and the different problems facing them. It was shocking and heartbreaking but a wonderful read. I really think this should be on the best sellers list up there with "This is going to hurt".

  • ⭐️ REVIEW TIME ⭐️ - The Prison Doctor, by Dr Amanda Brown - “Violence, drugs, suicide. Welcome to the world of a Prison Doctor. Dr Amanda Brown treats inmates in the UK’s most infamous prisons. From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm, she has witnessed it all from her patients.” (Blurb from the back of the book). - I was so excited to read this, and whilst I enjoyed it, I was slightly disappointed that it wasn’t as juicy and hard hitting as I’d have liked. I was expecting gob smacking horror, horrifically cringeworthy tales, details of things I’d find difficult to read in that ‘this is horrific but I can’t put it down’ way. - I found the start of the book quite tame, fluffy even - Amanda’s description of her family life, her past, her training etc... although her writing is wonderful, I just wanted to skip all the niceties and get straight into the gritty, scary stuff. But it didn’t come. - Admittedly there were a few examples / descriptions of some pretty horrifying situations, but they were few and far between. I wanted it to fast paced, juicy and hard hitting all the way through. Some may find that kind of reading difficult, and prefer this style (it’s more palatable) so it all comes down to personal preference. - The book did give a fascinating insight into life as a prison doctor, and an insight into what goes on behind those locked gates. It also gives a great insight into what the prisoners have endured - their backgrounds, their own suffering, and the reasons why they may have ended up living a life of crime. - I’m glad I read the book, and as I said, I did enjoy it. I would recommend it, just be aware that if you are expecting (and wanting) something that’s going to have you gasping in shock, covering your eyes and feeling your heart pound, this might be a little tame. - I’m giving it ⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - - - -#bookreview  #theprisondoctor  #prisonbooks  #bookstagram  #bookstoread  #booksofinstagram  #bookworm  #bookish  #booklove  #bookaddict  #bookobsessed  #latestbook  #whativeread  #frangrantbooks  #bookreviews  #bookmad  #bookishgirl  #bookstagramuk  #ukbookstagram

  • Having absolutely loved every minute of ‘This is going to hurt’ I wanted to give something similar a go again this month after struggling with getting in to a book since returning from holiday. Whilst this book is running along a similar theme; it’s completely different in terms of style. It seems to so far have a more novelistic approach which although I’m fine with, doesn’t grab me as much as the super short snappy chapters of Adam Kay’s memoirs. So far though I’m really enjoying it. The insight into being the doctor in a prison isn’t something I can say I’ve given a lot of thought to until now - I definitely couldn’t do it, and I’m only 100 pages in! 📚💘 • • •#thepagesweturn  #book  #augustreads  #bookstagram  #bookish  #igersbook  #igersbooks  #readstagram  #bookshelf  #bookclub  #sharedshelf  #amandabrown  #theprisondoctor  #prisondoctor  #booklover  #bookworm  #booknerd  #whatleedsreads  #leedsreads  #igreads  #booksbooksbooks  #bibliophile  #goodreads  #bookish  #leeds  #colton  #home  #friyay  #morning  #august

  • Enablers.... So the other day I showed you my stack of non fiction books. Well since then my stack has increased as the lovely @cenbookfairy_tylwythtegyllyfr  sent me this book after I expressed as interest in it. This is not the only book I have received from the lovely friends I have made on #bookstagram  and I will be showing those over the coming weeks, so be sure to keep an eye out to see what other great books I've acquired. I think the generosity of the community is outstanding and I'm glad every day that @charlie_moons_bookclub  persuaded me to join. To everyone I have spoken to, interacted with and/or met in person, thank you for being kind and making me feel so welcome.

  • I loved this memoir by Doctor Brown, starting with her career as a GP to her life as a prison doctor. Dr Brown doesn't shy away from the subjects of violence, drugs or suicide; instead she tells her joyrney and that of her patients with honesty and without bias. Perfect for fans of non-fiction with grit.#bookstagram  #bookreview  #theprisondoctor

  • If you want an open,honest and raw book- this is the one for you. 🥼 Dr Amanda Brown invites us into her life and career and both a GP and a prison doctor. 🥼 Dr Brown is a very caring ,passionate doctor who puts the care and interests of her patients first- however during her time as an NHS figures and targets get in the way of what and how she wants practice medicine. A split second decision of quitting being a GP changes the course of her life. 🥼 She becomes a prison doctor at a young offenders unit before moving onto the nturtourious Wormwood Scrubs then finally a female prison. 🥼 It is really quite harrowing and at times distressing to read what these prisoners have gone through- but as a reader you need that as this is real life. 🥼 The courage,compassion and dedication that Dr Brown shows to each and everyone of them show the type of person that she is. 🥼 She does not pre-judge them and through this and her compassion she does start to unless and get to see them as individuals and not just a prisoner. 🥼 I truly admire Dr Browns’ work and her compassion and non judgmental attitude. 🥼 As you read this book it opens your eyes to what prison life is like for the staff and how you at times cannot always like it at the door. 🥼 An interesting eye opening read. A must for every book lover. 🥼 Thank you so much Dr Amanda Brown for not only giving us a taste of her life and career but for all the work you continue to do. 🥼 Thank you also to @hqstories  for gifting me this book.#theprisondoctor  #amazingbook  #dramandabrown  #bookofig  #bookstagramner  #bookshelves  #readerofig  #readinglover  #loverofbooks  #highlyrecommendedbook  #eyeopening  #bibliophile  #readersofinsta  #loverofwords  #literatureisbeauty  #tylwythtegyllyfr
