Ingham

This is where I’m staying at the moment… Ingham is about an hour and a half north of Townsville. It’s not sole practice here which is a good thing because the hospital is much more busy. And thankfully there’s no asbestos for me this time.

Hughenden

Recently I’ve been touring the countryside again, on another rural relief term… For three months I’ll be going from place to place doing country work. It’s a mix of general practice, covering the local hospitals and health service and emergency. Hughenden is my first placement and it’s about 400 km west of Townsville. I’m here as the sole doctor in the town. Hopefully everything works out well!

Palm Island

This year has slipped away and I’m now in my last rotation as a JHO. In on rural relieving, where they send juniors out to cover positions that are either remote and have visitor locums as their only doctors, or that the regular local doctor has requested relief for some reason, like taking holiday leave. Right now I’m on Palm Island for a week. It’s a nice place with a storied history to say the least. I’m very glad for this opportunity to see this place and how healthcare works out here. I’ll be back in January as well, so it’s nice to get to know places, people and things I will see again.

Wake Me Up

When I’m wiser and I’m older…

Crazy Kids

I was babysitting last night and we made a cake. I think it is officially a chocolate eggshell cake… named after its two main ingredients!

Well, that was a lot of airplanes

On the very last flight of my most recent holiday, the title of this post passed through my mind. I had been on 11 individual segments in the last five weeks. I had skipped across the world and back, one more time. I had been in three countries, across an amazing diversity of landscapes. Sometimes when that happens to me I just can’t believe my eyes are seeing the things they are seeing… I just keep moving and the scenery in front of me keeps changing wildly. The islands of the south Pacific, California, the Great Plains, the foothills and Rocky Mountains. It was a lot to see. And in between it all are my family and friends. It was great to see those that I could. I am thankful for the time I was able to sneak away from reality and tour around. I am blessed with the opportunity to make this happen every now and then. I don’t know if visiting makes it easier or harder to be away. Either way, I’m glad it happened.
