Ready Player One
I do not want another few days like that for a while, please.
I was asked to spend the week in the secretaries' office, and I now see why there is such a turnover of medical secretaries . Not only are the teams far too small for the workload required, the stress of dealing with ill/upset patients is incredible.
In the past three days I have been sworn at, shouted at, had to deal with a crying patient and been asked endless questions to which the answer was either 'I don't know.' or 'Because this is the NHS - blame the Government for the budget cuts.'
I have also been working from 8am to 5.30pm with no lunchbreak because the phones would never shut up ringing long enough. Last night I crawled into bed at 10pm abd went to sleep immediately.
At least they don't talk back even if the deadlines for submissions are mean and nasty, requiring lots of overtime and causing extra hassle all of their own.
