At the end of the day, our job is not just about achieving the best outcomes for our patients.
"A young lady once walked into the ward and greeted me. I had no idea who she was until she told me her name and previous condition. She had previously been a patient in a life-threatening coma with a brain haemorrhage. I was elated to learn of her amazing recovery and we exchanged hugs immediately. I remembered vividly what I said to her just before she was discharged from the hospital: 'One day, I will see you walking to the ward to visit me' – and she did just that!
Memorable moments like this remind us that we can make a difference. At the end of the day, our job is not just about achieving the best outcomes for our patients – it is also about walking the journey with them."
