      Great question! If there were no restrictions like qualifications etc, I would have liked to have been a Dentist. I had a Dentistry placement as a Student Nurse and I found it really interesting. It’s also helped me understand phobias a lot more which has really helped in my current job when taking blood or giving injections.

      I would have been a heart specialist (cardiologist) if not a GP. The heart is THE key organ in the body, an incredible feat of engineering to work on that and help fix it if it goes wrong would be cool.

      That’s a difficult question to answer as I really like being a GP!

      I think it would be rewarding to work in a 3rd world country so maybe I’d volunteer with VSO (an organisation that supplies doctors to work abroad after natural disasters etc)

      As a non clinical person I would like to be the Health Minister so that I could fight for the correct resources for the NHS and to publicise the great work that all of the NHS workers do instead of continually berating the NHS and giving patients greater expectations of the service than it can afford.
