If you have an ache or a pain, or have noticed an unusual lump recently make sure you put your health first. Consultations can either be done by telephone or face to face if a physical examination is required.
Throughout medical school and GP training we had reflection drilled into our curriculum. As a practicing doctor I can see how important this is. By being able to take a situation and analyse what was done well and not so well allows for continual self-development and learning. It allows us to remain humble but at the same time gain knowledge and skills.
It’s something that I do on a daily basis and if it’s not something you’ve tried before, I encourage you to give it a go and let me know how you do.
