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. The Prison Doctor is her first book.

Reviews

'Written with both humour and deep concern for the lives of her incarcerated patients. It's a poignant, compassionate read, giving an insight into the complicated and damaged lives of some of the offenders ... a thoroughly enlightening and engaging book.' Mail on Sunday

'A fascinating, sometimes funny, often gruelling account of working behind bars.' Observer

'Not only features startling anecdotes but also the more rewarding aspects of her job - the prisoners who sent her letters of thanks, the ones for whom there remains hope.' i newspaper

'eye-opening ... harrowing ... Though so many of the tales are unbearably sad, and some details quite difficult to read without flinching, frequent moments of hope and humanity mitigate what could otherwise be a bleak look at life on the lowest rung of society's ladder.' The Telegraph

'All of the highs and lows of prison life, with heart-warming honesty and anecdotes to make your sides split and your jaw drop in equal measure ... Amanda has filled her book full of funny tales that both she and the inmates have had a good giggle at.' Sunday Express S Magazine

'An enthralling account.' The Sun
