Three good things

Holiday season. We are stuck in traffic at a standstill on the A303. Grey cloud and rain. Kids bickering in the back. “Daft Punk”, our holiday music, blaring from the speakers in defiance of it all. We will enjoy this holiday… Holiday season. We are stuck in traffic at a standstill on the A303. Grey cloud and rain. Kids bickering in the back. “Daft Punk”, our holiday music, blaring from the speakers in defiance of it all. We will enjoy this holiday…

And then, a pause. The rain and noise stops. I notice the summer meadow flowers flourishing around the steel railings in the central reservation. Yellow and red, glinting in the sunlight – beautiful. A small moment of intense joy and pleasure. I feel happy and savour it. I promise myself to do this more.

Going on holiday is often a time of reflection. A respite from our hectic plugged-in lives. A time for optimistic, well-intentioned resolutions.

  • “I will eat more healthily”.
  • “I will exercise more”.
  • “I will read one book a month”.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
