A MISSION IMPOSSIBLE?

Bond looked at ‘M’, his hand shaking as he lifted the vodka martini to his lips.

‘Let me check that I’ve understand you sir. You want me to work undercover in a primary care setting. You want me to manage unprecedented patient demand, deal with ever more complex clinical cases and battle an increasing hostile press. The only gadget that ‘Q’ has come up with to assist me is a pulse oximeter. And I’m to kill no one?’

‘That’s right James. It’ll be your most challenging mission yet. Can I rely on you?’

‘I’m sorry sir. Such a mission is beyond even my astonishing capabilities. For that you’re going to need someone genuinely exceptional. For that you’re going to need… a GP’.*


[*And just to be clear, that GP will have to be far better than the one I am and will also have to be supported, as I am by an exceptional support team made up of other doctors, practice nurses, HCAs, receptionists, administrators, secretaries, pharmacy staff and, of course Practice managers. And let’s not forget those oh so vital cleaners!]

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.
