    Choosing a specialty in medicine and why I left surgery

    Choosing a specialty in medicine and why I left surgery

    I left surgery to pursue a career in anaesthetics or anaesthesiology for our friends in the USA. In this episode aimed at medical students and Foundation Year Doctors I talk about why I left surgery, my general experience when it comes to choosing a specialty and why I think it’s important to take lots of things into consideration before disregarding other specialties.
    For the general public, this episode definitely serves a purpose into providing an insight into the different choices a doctor has to make early in their career as well as some of the different roles an anaesthetist has and what they do during an operation.

    Always pleasing others – Cause of unhappiness?

    Always pleasing others – Cause of unhappiness?

    How many times have you heard someone complain about a situation and then following with “I just have a hard time saying no.”? Insecurities and anxiety often result in unhappiness and depression, but do we actually recognise this as a reason for why we might be unhappy?
    In this episode I look at anxiety and more specifically ‘people-pleaser syndrome’ and how it may manifest in very subtle ways and why this may be the cause of depression as well as explain how many may not even realise they have it.

    Nursing on the front-line. When feeling alone doesn't mean you are

    Nursing on the front-line. When feeling alone doesn't mean you are

    Mental health and wellbeing affects us all. Never has this been more true than over the last few months, especially for key workers and nurses on the front-line during the covid pandemic. Hollie Lawrence is a student nurse who has created a group called ProVent, a safe area where healthcare workers can discuss openly and confidentially matters that may be contributing to stress and burnout in the workplace including the ever increasing feeling of guilt that healthcare workers have felt when they themselves have had to self-isolate. She joins the show to discuss ProVent and share some of her experiences.
