A little trip.

Doctors and sleep deprivation

A busy time has passed!

Hope you are all doing well.  I have been very busy with lots of patients to see, doing call and preparing CME for my colleagues.  Oh yeah, and my own life too.

I am currently en route to Bella Coola, I am doing a clinic there for two days.  Areas like this that are more isolated do not have the same access to specialists we have in the city.  The GPs do a good job but really appreciate a bit of backup.

I did a similar clinic in Bella Bella last week and it was a great experience.  The doctors and staff there were very welcoming and it seems like a great place!  I had lots of work to do though, there were a lot of patients to see.  I expect the same in Bella Coola.

For me, it is a great privilege to go on these trips and see more remote areas of the province I would not see otherwise.  Hopefully the consults I do will be useful to the patient and referring doctors.  I would like to do my best to support them going forward.

Any of you have any experience living in a remote area?  What was your healthcare like?  Were you happy there?
