      Really good question 👍

      So I would say that seeing patients is the best part of my job – so enjoyable and get to meet people of all ages from all backgrounds.

      The most difficult thing for many patients I see is if they have a medical condition and all the usual treatments have been tried and not worked. This can be difficult as people feel like they have run out or are close to running out of options.

      This is why I love working in an area called clinical trials. Because through clinical trials, we can sometimes offer new treatments which are not currently available in the NHS and this can help give people a more hope and know that there are still more options available. Good question!
