      In terms of patient care???

      it would be lovely to have more time to spend with individuals, never feeling that I am rushing patients as much as I try not to do now with limited resources.

      To be more holistic and being more proactive in implementing changes, looking for new ideas or ways of working, supporting patients and of course my colleagues.

      I would love to be able to have time for teaching, as I see this as a 2 way process- every day is a school day and we can all learn from each other

      I would make and interactive film of a GP consultation/s where you, the viewer, can click on each person, the GP, the patient and the relative, and find out what they’re thinking, and then at different points choose what they would say next and see the consequences played out!!! Whether you’d want to be a GP or not it’d help you figure out what really goes on when you’re thinking of 3 or 4 conditions or choices of management and which way a consultation could go- really well and good for everyone or really badly that ends up in big trouble.
      I could use it for training in consultation skills but I bet people could have fun playing out the story of how bad a consultation could get in the wrong hands! I know I would… šŸ™‚

      Iā€™d set up community projects in every town and village to improve health through the humanities. Drumming workshops, gardening, drama, singing, walking groups. By creating a local community we could abolish loneliness and dependence on the health service and improve the well-being of everyone. The evidence is there but the money sadly is not…… at the moment anyway.

      I would work in developing countries and work towards empowering the younger generations! This will include improving their education, training more teachers, doctors nurses, lawyers and many other professions. Hopefully, by empowering the younger generation they will grow to become independent and have the ability to make changes and develop the society the live. If I had all the money in the world, I would make healthcare and education free to everyone!
