      I have always enjoyed working whether it be in the RAF for 38 years or in my current role for the last 9 years so no I wouldn’t want to change my job at all.

      At this moment in time, I wouldn’t want to be anything but a nurse. I think if it came to a time where I didn’t love my job anymore, I would leave. Unless nursing radically changes, they’re stuck with me!

      I’m happy in my current job and would recommend being a GP as a really interesting and varied career.

      No I wouldn’t change from Medicine. I would certainly still recommend it to others.

      I would consider doing a 3 year standard degree first followed by a 4 year medical conversion course. Looking back I think I was still quite immature as an 18yr old going to med school so a 1st degree would help me grow up a bit and get university fun out of my system ready for the serious learning at Med School.
