Reflections on my NHS change pledge to “pair learn” with my service manager

Having the impetus to “change” inspired & motivated by #NHSChangeDay, I asked our service manager if she would allow me to shadow her for half a day for 5 dates over the next 4 months. I have committed to this in my own spare time, realising that the modern NHS, will not facilitate it as part of my work.

I am aware that changing things at work will require a consultant to do so in one’s own time & additional, discretionary ¬†energy. Once accepted, it is a simple choice-to do or not to do.

I have pledged to also force myself to write (improving my summarising skills!) & share my experiences, learning & thoughts.

So, over this week I’ll post my first reflection.
