The Prison Doctor Horrifying; heartbreaking and eye-opening; these are the stories; the patients and the cases that have characterised a career spent being a doctor behind bars. Violence. Drugs. Suicide. Welcome to the world of a Prison Doctor. Dr Amanda Brown has treated inmates in the UKs most infamous prisons first in young offenders institutions; then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Europes largest women-only prison in Europe; Bronzefield. From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests; and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm; she has witnessed it all. In this eye-opening; inspirational memoir; Amanda reveals the stories; the patients and the cases that have shaped a career helping those most of us would rather forget. Despite their crimes; she is still their doctor.
The Secret Barrister You may not wish to think about it; but one day you or someone you love will almost certainly appear in a criminal courtroom. You might be a juror; a victim; a witness or perhaps through no fault of your own a defendant. Whatever your role; you did expect a fair trial. I am a barrister. I work in the criminal justice system; and every day I see how fairness is not guaranteed. Too often the system fails those it is meant to protect. The innocent are wronged and the guilty allowed to walk free. I want to share some stories from my daily life to show you how the system is broken; who broke it and why we should start caring before its too late.
