A day in the life of a GP #The Huffington Post

I would like to share an amazing article written by Dr Zoe Norris. (please click on the link below to read the full article)

Dr Norris has written about a typical day in her surgery as a GP. From the lack of appointments, to home visits. By 8.10 in the morning she already has 20 patients waiting on her phoning them back as well as arranging care for a dying patient. High blood pressure, chest pains, queries on patients prescriptions, reviewing blood results, letters and minutes of meetings to read are just a fraction of what she is dealing with on a day-to-day basis.

For those working as a GP, Nurse, Manager or a Receptionist will identify on too well with what a GP is expected to deal with.

For those that have not had the experience working within a busy GP Surgery it will enlighten you to the very busy day that a Doctor faces on a daily basis. A GP does far more that just “seeing” patients in surgery.

What does come through from her article is that she is a human being, with feelings who is trying her utmost to be there for her patients . But everyone has their limit!

Sadly Dr Norris is not alone – many GP face similar days.
