Medicine degrees offered through clearing 'for first time ever'


I would not be a doctor again, just the fear of litigation, the fear of mistakes in such a rushed consultation with the phone ringing for all sorts of other things, the numbers seen [ my partner can see 75/ day = 45 at work and then 30 OOH from 7am to 1 am next day { I just cannot do it anymore} I just 45 +]. Never mind CQC, GMC,CCG [ you cannot even refer if you wish]. With your brains, do something else. As Prof Nicholson put it, it is resilience like soldiers at war, except doctors never get time off the combat zone. Should medicine be like war? In the UK, it is.
