OK, Kit ... here's my advice:- there's a whole world outside the NHS. Bin it, then take a year out (travel the world, volunteer in something that appeals, write your memoirs, whatever).

By the end of the year you'll have a few more ideas ... and who knows, after a year of refreshment, maybe you'll appreciate that being "on the tools" is a noble vocation after all!

And don't forget, there's always the "darkside"! smile

Just make sure you don't screw up any pension rights you have, though.

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
