After 30 years as a qualified Doctor I have come to appreciate that in essence there are four ways to influence good patient care. In this website I share these with colleagues.
1. One to one patient care.
2. So called ‘inspiring the young’ teaching and training undergraduate and postgraduate colleagues and those in paramedical and other professions within health care.
3. Good health service management – a well managed health service delivers effective care within an affordable budget.
4. Medical research -this component of medical care is not for everyone BUT has the critical advantage of being able to potentially influence more than one patient’s illness at once.
I have also written a page about maintaining a little equilibrium in what can sometimes be a stressful job.
