Our doubts are traitors

Our doubts are traitors
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.

Does the New Year make you feel braver, more resolute?  A moment of calm, perhaps, when anything seems possible, before Monday crashes in and everything seems impossible, again.

Our “impossible” goal is to put an end to the turning away of patients when they seek help from their GP.  That’s over 100,000 times each day in the UK.

It’s easy to sit back, and hope something turns up.  It’s easy to moan, easier still to let others do the moaning for you.

It’s easy to have intentions, feel good about them.

It’s hard to act on them and as Shakespeare reminds us, we lose the good we oft might win.

Will you convert your intentions into actions in what remains of 2016?
