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

Savage beatings, dirty protests, drug addiction, depression and prisoners desperate to turn their lives around, Dr Amanda Brown has seen it all.

The no-holds-barred memoirs of a GP who went from working at a quiet suburban practice to treating the country's most dangerous criminals - first in young offenders' institutions, then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Europe's largest women-only prison in Europe, Bronzefield.

A doctor devoted to caring for those most of us would rather forget.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`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
