At the heart of general practice since 1960

06.50 A short commute

Dr Elliott Singer, medical director of Londonwide LMCs and a GP in Waltham Forest, gets ready for a busy day

My alarm goes off at 6.50am - I suspect I’m facing another busy day in the practice today.

I’ll leave the house in about an hour. Luckily the practice is not too far from where I live so it only takes 10 or 15 minutes before I arrive at the surgery.

Then the first task of the day will be going through a stack of repeat prescriptions and other paperwork before the first patients of the day begin to arrive.

Have your say
