This job has a very odd Rota. Lots of weeks with 7x13hr shifts or 5x12hrs and then to counterbalance it all, clinic weeks which are 3 clinics plus teaching session totalling 2x8hr days.
This is one such week, and thus gives some free time to catch up on MSc reading, write case reports and audit reports from last block, and even do some Christmas shopping, cleaning and catch up on sleep.
However this does mean that the end of December and into January is a busy month of 12hr shifts. Still that's a week away and we have Christmas first.
