The secret life of a GP: a family doctor is there for everyone else’s before their own
There are several qualities you need to have in your doctor’s bag to survive as a GP. Professionalism is of the utmost importance. As is keeping your cool even when you are being shouted at by someone who is intoxicated or under the influence, as happens every few weeks; or being threatened, or put in a position where the patient is trying to make you complicit in their fraud. The doctor’s surgery is similar to the confessional. Only if it leads to a safeguarding issue can you break the confidential code.
