Twitter Web App : Martin Searle Indeed! My retired Dad GP was the same - although he adored Do No Harm, brain surgery being as far from general practice as to be more akin to space exploration, perhaps!

Twitter Web App : Wonderful piece by Rachel Clarke about dying, & what it teaches us about the best parts of human nature. Proof that medicine is often more art than science, & how compassion and empathy are so crucial. Rachel clearly has both of those in spades and the ability to write about it twitter.com/doctor_oxford/…

iPhone : Toddler is melting down in the library. The mom is mortified. A stern old lady approaches & I hold my breath. "It's okay," she tells the mom. "I've been there. You're doing great." And then to the toddler, "You're doing great, too. You're doing your best." ♥️

iPhone : "When people ask me if my job is depressing, I reply that nothing could be further from the truth.

All that is good in human nature – courage, compassion, our capacity to love – is here in its most distilled form."

Brilliant writing from Rachel Clarke
