The Prison Doctor - Amanda Brown

Doctor Amanda Brown trained and worked as a general practitioner for many years but became somewhat disillusioned when the government introduced many changes all to the detriment of doctors and ultimately patients. She took a great leap of faith moved to the prison service and worked at HMP Huntercombe, Wormwood Scrubs,and Bronzefield which incarcerated high profile women offenders and as such was rated the biggest prison of its type in the whole of Europe.


In short this is a wonderful read. It is full of warmth and shows a very passionate and caring woman dealing with many challenging cases on a daily basis. She never questioned her decision to work within the prison environment and truly did make a difference. Many thanks to netgalley for a gratis copy in exchange for an honest review. Very enjoyable and highly recommended.
