Amused and informed and passing time quickly!

Lying here for days after eye op.
Found these very clever podcasts ( after listening to you Justin on GPSA webinar recording and hearing your plug)
Have listened to all and helping to pass time.

Great hearing things i am doing already and learning heaps of new things to try.
Looking forward to getting back to work to put some more into practice.
Many thanks

Great Podcast!

I love the fantastic content and humorous presentation style. It's directly applicable to working as a GP. The only problem is that there hasn't been a new episode for a while. You're missed guys!

Excellent podcast

This podcast is addictive and has certainly forced me to think about how I practice medicine and has inspired me to make changes to my practice in some areas.
