GPs in the UK - How to achieve work - life balance?
Moving abroad is not an easy journey, with all the immigration, moving and legal aspects you have to consider, but there are many opportunities for the personal and professional development for each of you.
Relocation can seem like a massive hurdle, but armed with the right information, moving can be a relatively painless process. Home to some of the world’s best museums, restaurants, sports teams, and universities, there’s no doubt that moving to the UK is a goal shared by many.
Whilst having a successful career is an important part of many people’s lives, it’s also important to find a good balance between your job and your personal life. Not only is this great for your well being, but it also ensures you’re getting the best out of both aspects of your life.
While it’s important for everyone from nurses to GPs to immerse themselves in the world of medicine and continuously provide a high-quality service to patients, it’s equally vital to maintaining a good work-life balance too.
A positive work-life balance is strongly connected with a positive work environment. While it may not seem like it at first, achieving a positive work-life balance in a medicinal field is certainly achievable.
There are career opportunities out there that offer flexible working options, different areas to work in that will suit your personal needs, a highly skilled team with dedicated and supportive healthcare professionals and an attractive and diverse professional role for you.
With all the experience comes a lot of pressure and chaos, so nothing helps more than a supportive and dedicated team. Colleagues offer help, advice and value the team’s opinions. This will make even the hardest shift easiest and will help you enjoy what you’re doing and work together for the greater good of the patients in our care

Choose a healthy life!
During your personal time after work, you should have a healthy release from job stress. Popular leisure activities include eating out, nightclubs, attractions, theater, music, clubs, yoga class, cycling class, or an hour to just hit the weights in the gym.
Spend time doing what you love!
It’s ok to put yourself first from time to time. When you’re not working, take every opportunity to do things you love. Spend time with your children, exercise at least 3 times a week, and take a holiday when you’re able to.
Take your own advice!
What would you recommend to a patient displaying signs of high stress affecting their mental and physical health? Taking time off work? Find ways to keep stress to a minimum? You should do that yourself!
Enjoy the journey!
Lastly, it’s not just about reaching the goals; it is also about savoring each moment along the way to the goal that’s fulfilling. The many wonderful memories and lessons learned along the way make the goal so much more meaningful than the goal itself.
