View from the ground

These articles provide people working in primary care with an opportunity to voice their opinions, share their experiences, or discuss their role.

Do you have a story to share?

Would you like to write a short, informal, personal piece? The article would be your opportunity to discuss anything about your role. This could be:

  • an experience with a patient (bearing in mind confidentiality issues)
  • something you enjoy about your role
  • a particular success story
  • a ‘typical’ day in your role (if such a thing exists?)
  • an anecdote or amusing incident, or informal observations.
