An interesting thing happened this week. I've had some time off. Now that I really enjoy my job, I've been struggling to entertain myself when I'm not doing it. None of my medical friends have been able to join me for a holiday due to interviews/exams/working nights, and my non-medical friends are all tied up with other plans. I have done the travelling-on-my-own thing before, and find it a bit boring. I ventured home and then to London briefly, but am now back home chilling out with a glass of Ribena and listening to some great music. Life is good. Funny how society pressures us into thinking we have to jet off/catch Eurostar/book a hotel every time we have more than a day off work.

Meanwhile the MMC train rumbles on with Colonel Hewitt at the helm. One of the NHS soldiers on the front line recently joined the blogging community again - welcome Layla. She, along with thousands of other doctors, are continuing to deliver outstanding healthcare even in the current climate of uncertainty. Dr Crippen, Remedy UK and many others are providing extra support. It's incredible that doctors are now looking to David Cameron for support! The government is killing itself day by day. They have at least responded to the matter - click here for the DoH statement.
