A silver lining

A Silver Lining

Towards the end of 2020, we all had hope and could see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Approved vaccines, Christmas bubbles and the end of a devastatingly upsetting year. With the new strain, came the cancellation of Christmas bubbles, the start of a tiering system, and ultimately our third national lockdown. 10 months of lockdowns, isolation, social distancing, and grief, what is new about this new year? The struggle to keep positive, safe, and well during the previous months has at time been challenging.  But somehow, we got through. I have been fortunate that my family have …

Enhanced CPD

Are we moaning or worrying about Enhanced CPD? Sometimes I can’t tell. Yes, the GDC has caused some confusion,  some annoyance. And we now have even more paper work to complete.
