      I would have been, and indeed was an actor. I took time out of medicine to go to drama school and worked as an actor in TV, radio and film for a few years.

      I’m interpreting this as if something would stop me continuing as a GP now I’ve got here. Assuming I’d still be able-bodied I’d like to do something that would help people without being clinical- our administrative staff contribute a huge amount to this to help us look after our local population and we couldn’t run our practice without them.
      If it couldn’t be medical I’d enjoy teaching as long as I could do something creative, eg drawing, poems or singing! You might guess that from my intro video! Hope you like it!

      My dream job would be a professional tennis player which gives me the bonus of travelling the world! If that didn’t work out I would have probably studied Maths at University and worked towards becoming a maths teacher.

      Jo- I love shopping and clothes….so my dream job would potentially be a personal shopper! However, I think I would have potentially done accountancy and gone into the finance/business world (but I’m glad I chose medicine!)
