It’s the Sunday after the RACGP AKT and KFP exams for some and before a busy Monday for others. You may be a little flat and the world may seem a bit chaotic at the moment so I thought I’d take a minute to remind us all of how good we have it in Australian General Practice. What are some of the little things your patients have done for you? These are three that come to mind for me:
1. When the person I squeezed in for an appointment because they were ‘really ill’ stopped the consult to give me a (sugar free 👍) lolly when I was coughing at the end of a long day with lots of sniffling kiddies.
2. A lovely painting I got for ‘mates rates’ after helping someone through a ‘series of unfortunate events’.
3. A fantastic steak dinner cooked for me when I was spotted sneaking out of the practice clutching a bag of chips on a big on call night.
What little things have your patients done for you?
Take a moment to have a think and feel grateful – we really do have the best job in the world! We’ve got a big week coming up with Dr Gareth Boucher (who just sat the AKT and KFP) and Dr Ali Waddell starting at Partridge Street General Practice. We’re excited! 👍
