I came to medicine late having originally completed a degree in French and Philosophy and worked and lived for a while on an Inner Hebridean island in Scotland where I also set up my first folk band. I was heavily involved in Tall Ship sailing at that time and went on to fund my medical training by working as a Tall Ship cook during all my university holidays. The 100 hour weeks we used to do when first qualified as doctors were nothing to the ardours of my sailing days where I worked the same hours with the added delight of feeling sick most of the time.
The advent of a family brought an end to my sailing days and the folk singing, I am afraid, and I now spend non-work time looking after my 3 children and 2 step-children and cleaning out the goldfish tank.
