The things they say


Dear All, As a trainee (yes that old) i was given the weekly attending heartsink to deal with. so after a while we got into a nice routine, he'd book an appointment for middway through the surgery, he'd slip into the kitchenette next to my room, brew me up a cup of tea and then bring it in when i called him. we'd chat, i'd drink my tea, once i even resorted to re-painting the walls in the room, 10 mins at a time with a brush and paint pot in the cupboard. that took about 10 appointments. 0 points for healthcare, 100% for doctor patient relationship. Regards Paul C
