❄️😁HAPPY FRIDAY ALL😁❄️
I’ve been getting lots of messages from people wondering if we’re still going to do events and if thewellnessmedic is still going! YES WE ARE!
Sorry about the radio silence but we’ve had a lot going on.... so we’re just taking a bit of a breather before we get back into the full swing of things 😁
After all we have to practice what we preach? I’m still so overwhelmed by the emails we get from people having real problems in the healthcare profession and not knowing where to turn. ~
Our campaign #IAMAWELLNESSMEDIC is under construction to be able to provide you all with the tools you need to really drive this forward! Make yourselves heard and promote good wellbeing for all of the healthcare community. ~
Hope you all have a fab Friday and if your feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything, just take a little breather and stop. No one else will tell you to ⭐️😌
✨🎉❤️DIRTY 30 ❤️🎉✨
I’ve had the most incredible and very spoilt weekend of the most incredible party, followed by a couple of days in Lisbon thanks to the amazing @sebkern ❤️ check out our hotel entrance!! ~
So looking forward to the next year of my life and on.... got so many exciting things planned for thewellnessmedic and to really push for the need of medics wellness. 😌😌It seems like it’s needed more and more! Every news story I read, every post shows the desperation for morale boosting in our industry! ~
Spend time with people who care, with people who want to help you. Who get what you do!
Over this Birthday time I’ve been let down by a couple of very good friends But instead of dwelling on the negatives, I’ve focused on the positives in this. And it’s spurred me on to try and produce great things for thewellnessmedic, and also to re-evaluate the importance of those strong friendships! No one needs the negative influences in their life 🧐
I cannot thank all the amazing friends and family I have enough for supporting me in everything I try and do!! Thanks chaps! ! ~
Watch out for our March news 👍🏻👍🏻😘😘 and hope you all enjoy your Sunday evening!
🎉✨NEWS ALERT ✨🎉
Apologies for the radio silence, it’s been a busy couple of weeks and today is my BIG birthday.... so I’ve been sorting out things for that! ~
Today though is one of the bestest birthday presents, one of our WellnessMedic associate directors has made it into the BSMS prospectus! Well done to @rio_hoggins95 for her great weeks diary as a fourth year medical student! ~
The team we have in Brighton are so fab and enthusiastic and it’s so inspiring to see medical students taking such an interest in the importance of wellbeing and looking after yourselves! And Thankyou to the university for the little shout out for thewellnessmedic!!! ❤️
Have a lovely weekend everyone! 🎉✨💎
This week has got me really thinking and quite upset at how people are feeling about their work and their own health is suffering because of it! ~
On the news this week we heard that 33,000 nurses left the NHS last year! That’s enough nurses to staff 26 hospitals! 😡 ~
I’ve had 7 emails just this week from desperate junior doctors, saying that they are tired/ burnt out/ underappreciated and generally fed up not just with their jobs but with life! This makes me so so sad and even more ambitious to make thewellnessmedic a platform for these people and to bring like minded medics together! ~
I want this to GO VIRAL! I want you to spread the word by being wellnessmedics yourselves! Have a cup of tea with a colleague, go outside for 10 minutes to get some fresh air, smile at a colleague you havnt met before. Look after each other, and also yourself! ✨ ~
I know some people might find this a bit wishy washy, but it’s so so important we all stick together. Look after one another, and make those in charge see the effect our working environments are having on us as workers! ~
Tag yourselves/ others as #Iama wellnessmedic! ❤️ I’ll be getting badges/ lanyards/pens, all sorts of campaign bits so DM me if you want to spread the word in your hospital/GP practice/ clinic! ~
I hope if enough of us make a noise about this, it may just maybe get through so someone! 👍👍
👀👀✨💎SNEAKY PEAK AT OUR GOODY BAGS 💎✨👀👀 Last night every guest who came to our supper club received one of these great goody bags as a token of our thanks for supporting @thewellnessmedic! Thankyou @chloeoctaviarobinson For taking this snap! 📸
We are so lucky to have the support of some amazing companies, and @bysarahlondon kindly provided all guests with their organic facial oil! Which is absolutely a must have to rescue that Dry january skin! And smells amazing. ❤️
@rejuvenateduk provided all guests with their fab hydration sachets, as well as their Açai berry cellulose drink which we served as a welcome drink to all guests. @redroastercafe also provided each guest with a sample of their coffee. Which if you havnt tasted yet, is fantastic! So full of flavour. And even better if you work for the NHS you get 20% for the entirety of January! 💎💎💎💎 ~
I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday, if you came last night do tag us with your goody bags and let us know what you think of the products! We love them! ❤️❤️

💎We’re all diamonds! 💎
As I watched the news this morning and the coverage of the “winter pressure in the NHS” and how this is the worst winter yet, operations and appointments are being cancelled , people are waiting in corridors I can’t help but feel stressed before I even get to work! ~
As healthcare professionals our work is always in the public eye, it’s often scrutinised and with the last couple of years of junior doctor contract debates still looming it can seem like a whole load of pressure on our shoulders. Most companies would love publicity, but the publicity and spotlight around the NHS at the moment is not he most positive. And that has a negative effect on us workers! ~
Wherever you work in healthcare, your doing an amazing job! Don’t take the stress of the overcrowding on your shoulders (although you will as your a caring individual), and take some time for you. You can’t solve everyone’s problems... trust me! ~
This quote I think is so brilliant and brings a great image of hundreds of thousands of little diamonds (or big diamonds) being formed in our hospitals/clinics 💎❤️👍🏻! Ps- I’m not saying everyone is a chunk of coal either! 😄
Your all doing an amazing job, and should be proud of that! The extra funding for the NHS is so delayed that the main reason this ship is still afloat is due to the people working on it! Hundreds of diamonds 💎
Happy Friday everyone 😘👩🏼⚕️
