A change would do you good

As promised, time for some changes. I've been promoted, I'm relocating south and I am much happier with life now that I have resigned from my current job.

It's difficult to go into details about what I'm going to be doing given that there are certain colleagues who would love to 'out' me to the nearest Consultant. Unfortunately the NHS is not yet as open as it may hopefully be in the future. Put simply, I've found a job:
a) I will enjoy and find rewarding for most of the time
b) The other members of staff I will be working with will be normal people
c) I will have a reasonable lifestyle outside of work
d) Is not General Practice, for those who may be wondering
e) (importantly) I will be able to make a unique contribution and not be just another monkey performing the same tricks as everyone else
f) avoids the MMC rubbish next year
g) allows me to move so I can be closer to loved ones

Is this the utopia I craved in my posts previously? Has Dr Vegas found the road to job satisfaction and life satisfaction? That remains to be seen. It is a step in the right direction though. And it may allow Vegas, The Venial Sinner and The Lost Doctor to have a few pints in the same pub together and incite the riot that will signal the downfall of Mrs Hewitt.

Oooh! If only I could find a job that sounds so good! Near loved ones (but not living WITH them...), nice coworkers (mine are nice, but a number of them are still, like, in high school!), job satisfaction...

Best of luck to you in the new endeavour, and I do wish you many a happy pint with the other two members of your triumvirate.

Excellent, excellent, excellent!
Very pleased for you.

Sounds great, is it exotic dancing??

We'll know what the new job is when he changes the heading of the blog to 'Tales from the library / forge / biscuit factory', of course.

Or 'tales from the jam factory'. I was offered a job in a jam factory once, but declined when they told me to wear wellies, 'because it's a bit wet down there'.

Thanks for the support guys.

Unfortunately the new job doesn't involve exotic dancing (I think) - it is still within the NHS. I don't think I'll be making any jam either but with the current modernisation plans who knows? Maybe the appendix to my contract will include a week of nights at the forge as well.
