Dr Hunt's example

Dr Hunt; thank you for this piece of art which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Obviously your degree in Art benifitted you very much. As I'm in nearly
the same level of trainning doing the VTS scheeme for General Practice I
know exactly what you feel. Immagine doing a new Audit every 6 month in a
new hospital post different branch every time ..well just to tick the
right box. Added to that a big long one in the General Practice this one
is a pass or fail. Many of my collaegues failed in it and had to accept
extra trainning to re do the whole audit again. Oh I forgot.. if you
forget a title or arrange them wrongly it is a fail straight away!! .
Well thanks goodness that the RCGP will change all that starting from 2007
and will replace it with the new MRCGP. So do you like to come and join
the General Practice then?!
