This is just going to be a quick post as I am writing it on my phone. I'll be writing something much more substantial over the weekend when I have a laptop, but I will try my best now.
I survived my first day!!
I've also survived my second and third. Well truthfully it is all induction and shadowing so I'm not sure it counts as real survival just yet.
All the other junior doctors, without exception, are lovely. I could not have hoped for a better bunch of people to work with. The exceedingly friendly outgoing fy1s have organised a great social induction to help us to get to know each other. So far we've had an evening of food & nibbles in the common room of the flats, as well as a trip to a pub quiz. Impressively we came 2nd even though we missed the 1st round. It was all down to our knowledge of Kate & Wills trivia.
Although much of the last 3 days has been death by induction form filling, I have spent some time on the watergate I will be working. Again everyone is lovely and it seems like they'll let me get very involved as I'm keen to pursue paeds as a career. Shame I'll be fighting the uber keen student to clerk patients.
Anyway writing this on my phone is getting tiring so I'm off to eat spaghetti.
