I bet The Hoff never had to work on Sundays

On call this weekend. Has been quiet so far. Was on call yesterday as well. Oh yes, I am also on call on Monday and on Tuesday. Then, having worked for 97 hours in 9 days, on Wednesday I have to do a case presentation to all the Consultants. Fun fun fun. To make up for all of this I will be having a weekend break in Europe next weekend to relax.
Not much else going on. Considering my next career move, but just like any good game of chess you have to always consider what your opponent (in this case the government, the Health Minister and my own hospital administration) is planning. The answer is that no-one knows. A fundamental reform of doctors' careers is taking place over the next 6-12 months and it is going to screw up the NHS even further. I only hope I can sort my life out before it takes me down with it....
A major decision next week will be whether or not to buy David Hasselhoff's autobiography now or wait for the price (18 quid!) to come down. What price a signed copy...? While I'm at it, please click on the link on the right of this page to cast your vote.

What a disturbing picture. I don't know if I'll ever be able to erase that image.
I'm not sure what the Hoff actually does can be considered working.

Didn't I read on the lost doctor's website that you were going to resign?
If so, did you?

Hello,

I think you should buy it - The Hoff is part of history - he performed on the Berlin wall before it was knocked down! You can't get better than that! Although 18 pounds is pretty steep....

Anyway my name is Ben Fawkes - I work at onexamination.com. I hope you don't mind me messaging you like this - onexamination is going through some big changes and we would like to hear your opinion basically.

We have recently set up a 'med news review' feature. This basically collects all the medical news from across the whole web and centralises it on our site - allowing you to keep up to date with current medical affairs. You can then vote and comment on these stories and influence what the community reads. As a tech savvy individual, would you be prepared to be one of the first reviewers of this new 'playground'? Have a look and sign in here: http://labs.onexamination.com. Previous username and passwords can be used if you have had an account with us.


We would love to know what you think. Please take a look and have a play - if you have any feedback you can contact us via the labs site or me personally at ben.fawkes@onexamination.com. And if you feel inclined to write about the site in your blog we would really appreciate it, no obligation though!



I look forward to hearing from you!

The signed copies are £9.50.

Really - who'd buy a book once someone's written in it?

Fulham's Moritz Volz has revealed he had the name of his hero David Hasselhoff written on his boots to inspire him - and promptly scored his first goal in three years (Express).
