Chorleywood Bookshop presents “The Prison Doctor” and her fascinating perspective on working within the prison service.

Horrifying, heartbreaking and eye-opening, these are the stories of the patients and the cases that have characterised a career spent being a doctor behind bars.

Dr Amanda Brown has treated inmates in the UK’s most infamous prisons – first in young offenders’ institutions, then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Bronzefield, Europe’s largest women-only prison.

From miraculous pregnancies to dirty protests, and from violent attacks on prisoners to heartbreaking acts of self-harm, she has witnessed it all.

Join us for an evening of both heart-warming and gruesome tales about the patients and the cases that have shaped a career helping those most of us would rather forget.
