Are GP dreams so hard to beat?
Every patient that I ever meet
I long to see them, see them face to face
Cos as a GP I’m ideally placed

I’m gonna consult, gonna use techniques
Get GP kicks right through the week

To understand them, my heart it yearns
All their ideas and their concerns
And I feel a deep frustration
‘Till I know their expectations

I’m gonna listen, gonna let you speak
Get GP kicks right through the week, all right

When the CQC inspector calls
Everybody briefly keeps the rules
And so from him at his insistence
I’m glad to keep my social distance

For a rating, one of good, I’ll seek
Get GP kicks right through the week

With too much work and too little time
And with criticism on the climb
I’ll see the patients that I really should
And try to see in that there’s something good

And though the future, though the future’s bleak
Get GP kicks right through the week, all right

And though the future, though the future’s bleak
Get GP kicks right through the week, all right

After ‘The Undertones’.

A rendition of this song can be found on my Facebook page on 24th November 2021. It’s probably best avoided.

Nothing particularly interesting to say other than I'm a GP with an interest in emotional well-being, an avid Somerset County Cricket Club supporter and a poor example of a Christian who likes to put finger to keyboard from time to time and who is foolish enough to think that someone out there may be interested enough to read what I've written. Some of these blogs have grown over time and some portions of earlier blogs reappear in slightly different forms in later blogs. Apologies for the repetition. What I have posted today (6th August 2018) consists of what I have written over the last few years - whether I write anything ever again, only time will tell.
