Northallerton life

With packed timetables up here we’ve been making the most of our weekends to explore the area by going on country walks and meeting some locals (the mooing kind).

Very curious cows in Osmotherley

We climbed Roseberry Topping, North Yorkshire’s rival to the Matterhorn (apparently).

We wandered along the scenic Sutton Bank with a furry friend for company.

Naomi’s dog Rafiki, who was a bit camera shy that day

Don’t worry Hull York Medical School, we did some work as well.

Of course though, our Tuesday evenings are now very much dedicated to watching the Great British Bake Off.

Overall it’s been a very busy few weeks, but I’m really enjoying the time I spend at my GP surgery, which is based within Northallerton itself and is one of the largest in the area. I’ve met patients with some quite unusual conditions such as Myasthenia gravis, advanced Huntington’s disease and a little girl with mumps despite her vaccinations. Next week I’ll be set up in my own consultation room seeing patients alone, which should be a great learning experience.

To finish, a nice sight I had coming back from GP one afternoon – it made the rain a bit more bearable.

That door on the far right by the cars is the entrance to our accommodation

Until next time!
