It is well recognised that the transition period from medical student to qualified doctor is a particularly demanding time.  However, the life course of a doctor presents its own challenges of equal or greater significance and the job of a doctor is becoming increasingly difficult (Figley, Huggard and Rees 2013).  Evidence for this relates to organisational, system, societal and clinical factors.  Specifically, pressure of patient through-put; p

The General Medical Council (GMC) describes the duties of a doctor as "giving patients the information they want and need in a way they can understand" and to "support patients in caring for themselves to improve and maintain their health" (GMC, 2017).  As clinicians, we therefore have the responsibility not only to treat, but also to educate our patients.  With the advent of new technologies there are increasing numbers of option
