Rural GP

This morning I am going in to do a half-day in a GP surgery. I didn't really enjoy my last GP placement - the staff were nice, but I don't like the work style. I'm not really into managing things like vaccinations and assessments for home care. It is necessary, but not me.

I'm not fascinated by managing the lives of well people - I don't have that need to control or input into the lives of others who don't need help in any kind of urgent manner. (It almost put me off psych, but psych is . . . different to this.) It is probably entirely natural that I'm not looking forward to this morning.

On the flip side, I could fall in love with the way that these people work and decide to become a GP. Unlikely, but possible. We'll see.
