About the Author
Dr Amanda Brown is a GP at the largest women-only prison in Europe, Bronzefield. Before transferring to work in prisons, Amanda was a regular NHS GP but gave up her practice because she disliked the way the job’s focus has shifted. She went on to work at a teenage detention centre, before moving on to Wormwood Scrubs and then finally to Bronzefield where she continues to work.

I cried three times reading this one and I think it comes down to how "foreigners" are treated within our system.
Especially when they have, in our eyes, actually not committed heinous crimes but have got lost along the way of trying to escape their own purgatory at the hands of their own dictatorship or the likes.
Amanda's compassion is what we can only hope for when visiting our own GP. A strong courageous lady, who deserves nothing but respect.
She's an inspiration and maybe the junior doctors of today should all have to complete a semester within the prison system.
The ending was not what I expected and yes I openly cried in public!
Maybe one day Amanda will bring us another book to regale us further with her tales of being a Prison Doctor.
Best wishes Sean
