Dr David Roche is taking a 10-month break from his practice to compete in the epic round-the-world yacht race, Global Challenge.

Dr Roche said he decided to join the 17-man crew of The Firm after becoming demotivated at work and to raise money for his local hospice.

He also has the full support of colleagues at his practice in Wadhurst, East Sussex, some of whom have even taken part in a sponsored parachute jump to help his fundraising efforts.

Dr Roche has negotiated a career break to take part in the race, which starts in Portsmouth in October. A locum will cover his list.
