As an anesthetist, I once in a while observe previous patients as I approach my every day life outside the healing facility.

In such difficult circumstances for the NHS it influences us to reflect why we came into solution in any case – to have a genuine effect in genuine individuals’ lives and not simply be a mysterious machine gear-piece in a tick-box, target-driven framework.
