Sometimes life has a way of changing...It turns out I will be actually heading off to New Zealand for a few months after all. I am still planning to visit Australia but only as a holiday.
I am delighted about New Zealand actually. I went in 2001 as part of my elective and fell in love with Wellington immediately. Lots of wonderful memories and friendships, can't wait! Although at the moment I will go wherever the job takes me. I am sure it will be challenging and different from practising in the UK. The NHS is certainly going through a very hard time at the moment. But there isn't a day I ever regret becoming a GP, I certainly love my job.
