Dr Simon Carroll (Temple 80)

Simon writes, “I continue to work as a full time GP in rural Norfolk and have just come back from a four-week sabbatical to recharge my batteries… for the first two weeks I did a solo Coast to Coast walk from St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay carrying everything I needed in my backpack and camping out most nights in the back of pubs and the gardens of Bed and Breakfasts. A lot of places had closed down due to Covid-19 which only added to the adventure! I never did DofE at Stowe so this was my first (ever) long hike and was a steep learning curve. It was great fun though and am much refreshed as I now come back to frontline NHS work.”
