Back to the future – why I came out of retirement to be a GP again


It is no "lightbulb" moment that you like and want to do what you trained to do, namely see and help patients. Not having a pop but strangely it's what I wanted to do but got so p!ssed off with the tidal wave of human misery and deluge of admin crap that it wasn't worth the candle. So when I got out of GMS practice I kept seeing people but under my terms. Not too long, not too many and when and where I wanted. The money was secondary but I don't undervalue myself. Now I too have rediscovered the fun in it. I leave the surgery smiling and want to keep going. However that brings me to the appraisal and revalidation bollux. Reckon I'll call it a day when I have to concern myself on 360 MSF and patient feedback. Medicine is not a popularity contest.
