“I love being a GP, spending time with other people, listening to them, helping them- and learning from them because from their experiences you understand your own experiences. And it’s not just their physical illnesses but also their life challenges. I try to reassure my patients: you are not the only one who has had that problem and there is light at the end of the tunnel. Reassurance is such a fantastic tool- I have seen it work.”
