About this book:

"This is my story and the stories of other doctors who chose to walk away. Ours is a private anguish filled with the niggling suspicion that we should have been stronger, more committed..."

Maria Phalime had high expectations for life as a doctor. But when she started to practise she faced inhuman hours, poor resources and little support, and eventually, she turned her back on it all. Here she also speaks to other doctors who gave up medicine and uncovers common issues ailing the health sector.
