On Yer Bike!
Show Notes Transcript

This week, GP, mentor and primary care legend Dr Steve Pratt is back! He talks to Nik about what it's like to have a proper sabbatical, using the adventures of Youtuber Ed Pratt ( no relation!) as a springboard for their discussion. His 1000km challenge on a tandem, cycling England's hilliest coastline has more in common with primary care than you might think! Amongst other things, they discuss the amazing feeling when you can see a problem as an opportunity; how some patients might express their separation anxiety if you are planning some time away; and how taking a proper break can lead to life changing decisions…
There's also the usual look at the medical news headlines and the week in daytime TV.
