      I started off working in hospital medicine and wanted to be a diabetes specialist. After qualifying as a doctor, I worked for over 5 years in hospital jobs, and then decided that my passion is in maintaining health and disease prevention, so being a GP and seeing people before they become too sick and need a hospital was a better job for me. I really enjoy helping people to keep healthy instead of treating illness. Health promotion is a big part of my job as a GP.
