It doesn't matter where you are in the country...

Bank Holidays working in A&E are on the whole always the same. Full of DIY accidents, sporting accidents, drunks, people who have had accidents whilst drunk, overprotective parents bringing their kids in 'cause they can't get to see a GP and all the time people telling you to hurry up because it's a Bank Holiday and they don't want to spend all day in A&E.

Well, guess what? It wasn't my first choice of location to spend August Bank Holiday either, but I had no choice in the matter, unlike the majority of the patients I saw who could have waited until they got a GP appointment in the morning. So don't moan at me, because the mood I was in today, I was highly likely to moan back at you and the general public doesn't like that!

Got a day off tomorrow and then start a week of nights on Wednesday. I haven't done a whole week of nights in my new job yet. I've done a couple here and one there but not a whole week of working 8pm until 8am. I guess I'm a little scared as it's new territory for me, and I was scared starting at this hospital with the usual self-confidence doubts, but I've had good feedback from the rest of the staff, so I just have to let the positives prevail and push the negatives away. Sounds easy on paper!
