Thanks George Forgan-Smith ๐Ÿ˜‰



It’s the week after the RACGP AKT and KFP exams for some and before a busy week for others. You may be a little flat and the world may seem a bit chaotic at the moment so I thought I’d take a minute to remind us all of how good we have it in Australian General Practice.


What are some of the little things your patients have done for you? (#kickbacks 8-)) These are three that come to mind for me:




Sugar free, too ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘




When the person I squeezed in for an appointment because they were ‘really ill’ stopped the consult to give me a (sugar free ๐Ÿ‘) lolly when I was coughing at the end of a long day with lots of sniffling kiddies.




A Series of Unfortunate Events




A lovely painting I got for ‘mates rates’ after helping someone through a ‘series of unfortunate events’ (see the main picture!)




Needs banana for scale ๐ŸŒ




3. A fantastic steak dinner cooked for me when I was spotted sneaking out of the practice clutching a bag of chips on a big on call night.

Take a moment to have a think and feel grateful – we really do have the best job in the world! ย ๐Ÿ‘
