“‘Because I like helping people.’ That’s what I said at my medical school interview when they asked why I wanted to be a doctor, but it’s taken me many years to value what that truly means: being able to help someone in pain, all different types of pain, and the deep sense of fulfilment it gives me. I feel honoured to be a doctor, to have that unique relationship with so many people, and to be their trusted confidante in times of need.”

It is the only medical speciality that allows you to spend time getting to know a person and to help them along with their health choices rather than just treating "disease". I have met some truly inspirational people working as a GP who have taught me health management that isn't taught at medical school."
