"To be trained is to have arrived, to be educated is to continue to travel”
I shall start at the beginning and allow this personal story to unfold. Qualified in 1985 at Guys, I went on the house job “windsurfing” run followed by 3 years on a General Medical/Emergency Room rotation in New Zealand and a 3 year adventure as Senior Ship’s Physician for P&O Cruises, interspersed with some backpacking prior to settling into General Practice as a partner in Poole 27 years ago.
I have been learning and collecting supporting information throughout the entirety of my career, and found myself with CPD portfolios dating back to 2000.
