  • 9am: Regular catch up with PCT clinical director, along with strong coffee.
  • 10am - 12pm: Return to practice for morning surgery of appointments, extras and telephone appointments.
  • 12pm - 12.30pm: Multitask finishing off repeat scripts, path links results and scanned correspondence.
  • 1pm - 3pm: Monthly meeting of local PBC chairs annd PCT.
  • 4pm - 6pm: Return for evening surgery.
  • 6pm - 7.30pm: Catch up on new scanned documents, path links and dictate letters and action any issues from the day.
  • 9 - 10pm: At home review any PBC issues ... may even read a non medical book.

I think I am good value for public money spent!
