I would try to set aside allocated time in the morning to organize my list, liaise with the MDT and set a list of goals that I need to achieve throughout the day. By identifying causes of stress I would hope that this would allow me to think of strategies to cope with these. One stress factor at a previous job was that I felt frustrated that I couldn't see the patients due to them being seen by nursing staff in the morning. I dealt with this by liaising with the nursing staff and asking when would it be a good time to see Mr.Jones. "Perhaps I could see him after he has had his wash, which would mean his pain killers would have a chance to work. Would this suit you.

I am extremely flexible and have no family ties or commitments which means I can fit around the team and I'm always happy to work children holidays to help out.

I also feel my lack of experience may be a weakness and for this reason try to expose myself to as many learning environments as possible and regularly attend CPD evenings, practice clinical scenarios with friends and volunteer at local sports clubs.
