I don’t find it stressful travelling to work as i often look forward to see everyone and the patients. But it can be quite stressful travelling across a large area of South London trying to visit all the patients within limited time. Although some patients may only wish to see you for 10 mins and others will want 1/2 hour or more. Most patients are understandable if we are a little bit late due to the heavy traffic as they are glad of the support.
Hi Leah, Emma here
I quite like the travelling and use the time to listen to music or podcasts 🙂
We don’t do as much of it when working on the wards as our patients are all in the hospital but as a doctor you also do some work in the community too.
