It’s been a rollercoaster few weeks. I became obsessed with watching the daily news briefings for a while, but started to limit my exposure because it really was not good for my mental health. Currently I’m still furloughed but after optometrists and dentists being left out of the much touted ’60 page document’, we are making preparations for a return to practice as soon as we’re allowed.
One nice piece of news for me is that my lovely Ophthalmologist mentor has been in touch to say that he’s keen to get me in at the earliest opportunity. The British College have finally told me I have two years to complete my placement. At least the extra wait means a bit more revision time for the Clinical Management Guidelines I guess. I think it’s going to be a very long road back to anything approaching normality but we are finally starting to move in that direction.
