Inhuman hours, overflowing emergency rooms, poor resources and little support - this is the daily reality of most doctors and nurses in South African public hospitals. 'This is my story and the stories of other doctors who chose to walk away,' she writes. 'Ours is a private anguish filled with the niggling suspicion that we should have been stronger, more committed, more able to handle the daily realities of practicing medicine in South Africa.'
A gripping personal account which exposes not only the deficiencies in the public health sector but also the personal pressures and expectations which come with being a doctor in South Africa.
