Doctor in the Most DANGEROUS Area of London | Peckham GP Experience 🤙
Notorious for its knife crime, gang violence and shootings I put my steel stethoscope on and decided to see what the fuss was all about.
Much to my surprise the patients were all very pleasant and polite and generally consultations were quick and easy.
Some of the most interesting differences I noted between working in London versus Australia was the strong cockney accent and the differing ethnic diversities. It is such an honour to be in a position to be able to reach out to different populations and spread the word of health promotion and disease prevention.
I’m pleased to have worked there, albeit for a short time, and felt no threat to myself. Would I be back? Well only in London would you see a dog strolling in a trolley and have the royal family on your doorstep, so yes, if the opportunity arose I’d definitely make my way back there again.
Peckham is a district of south London, England, within the London Borough of Southwark. 3.5 miles south-east of Charing Cross. At the 2001 Census the Peckham ward had a population of 14,720
Life as a Rural Doctor | Whitsundays GP Experience
In this episode I take you on my journey of working as a GP in rural Australia. For the next two weeks I’ll be working from the tropical paradise of the Whitsundays. I share with you some interesting differences between working in a rural town versus working in a metropolitan city and the type of cases that I’ve been presented with.
The 74 Whitsunday Islands lie between the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef, a massive stretch of coral teeming with marine life. Most of the islands are uninhabited. They’re characterised by dense rainforest, hiking trails and white sand beaches. The town of Airlie Beach on the mainland is the region’s central hub.
