Hello, and welcome to my blog! I’m Abbie, a part time GP in York, wife to my Yorkshireman and Mum to two little ones, aged 2 and 5.
My first foray in to social media as a GP was when I curated the @NHS twitter account in July 2017. I was surprised how much I enjoyed that week and how much interest there was in general practice so I decided to further mix my interest in social media with medicine and start my own blog.
This is a place for me to share the joys and hardships of trying to juggle life as a mum, a wife and a GP while trying to maintain some ‘me’ time. I will try to show you all the challenges of general practice in the current difficult ‘climate’ while hopefully highlighting how fulfilling a career it can be.
