Happy Guinea pig for the student docs!!

After being a guinea pig for 3rd year doctors i have come out unscathed and hopefully them a little bit more educated and confident !!.... Maybe me getting old but these young students looked like rabbits in headlight. But put them at ease straight away after removing my top.... I said, 'I know what your thinking' ..... 'your thinking how much abuse has he given his body for it to look like this !!!'. And I also added that the only thing I'm going to complain about is the temperature of your hands so make sure they are warm !!!......Seemed to break the ice.... and they all identified the fibrosis as well ..... Some were treating me like I was made of glass whilst others had their sleeves rolled up and dived in !!..... A good day in all and things were learnt, I was more than happy to oblige we all have to learn !!! :D :D

It is people like you that give them a human side. We know they have to be focused but they also need to know we need to be talked to not talked at.

Well Done

I remember them junior Doctors and one night when we had a quiet moment we worked out how much they were paid this was before they did away the 100 hour week. It was shocking junior Doctors work very hard its just a pity some become arrogant when they finish the training.

It is fantastic that people like Plumbob give up the time to help these Doctors.
