The business has never been in better shape financially - but I'm exhausted and empty.
I've spent the last 18 months breaking my back to keep the team safe - but feel completely unappreciated by them.
We have done everything possible to maintain the best patient care - but my FOH team are constantly listening to complaints.
Both the NHS and I have done our level best to keep our clinicians secure financially - but they are ungrateful and entitled.
We have an outstanding place to work - but team members are being poached for a few sheckles more.
I have unprecedented patient demand - but cannot find the people to do the work.
We have provided an excellent ortho service for years - but have lost our tender to a lower bid.
And so on.
It's an economic cycle.
It will pass.
Keep on, keeping on.
