Clinical excellence
This section is written as a narrative in the first person as I feel that the heart and soul of being a good doctor cannot and should not be reduced to a series of bullet points......
My approach to professional excellence is simple.   I treat people as I would like members of my own family to be treated.  I do the very best I can  for every patient referred to me.  I am approachable, friendly, and try to establish empathy early in a consultation.  I believe in "getting it right first time".  This means more than getting the diagnosis right.  It means finding out what the patient hopes for and expects from treatment, and explaining the limitations and risks of surgery.  Having explained treatment options in terms I hope the patient can understand, I check they have understood it.  My policy is complete openness and honesty.  I know my own strengths and limitations.  I don't hesitate to discuss difficult problems with colleagues, and refer on when necessary.  Though lucky enough to have "a good pair of hands" I always strive to improve my surgical skills.  In theatre, I am a meticulous operator, though not one of the quickest.  For emergencies, I am always available when on-call, and do not hesitate to come in even when not on-call if there is a problem with one of my patients.  In clinics and in theatre, I stay as long as it takes.  I am grateful to all the colleagues I worked with during my five years of excellent postgraduate training in ENT- including over 8 individual consultants in three busy departments. This gave me broad clinical experience and a sound basis for further professional development. I am now in my 7th year of independent practice, and have built on this foundation a wealth of clinical experience and judgement, learned mostly from my patients, to whom I am most grateful for entrusting me with their lives and wellbeing.
