It must be difficult working in the medical profession and perhaps sometimes things can become routine.

Please never forget what a large part you play in the emotional care & support of your patients and their families.

This is even more important when dealing with teenagers and young people due to the sensitivity of their age.

Walking into a clinic or ward and being greeted by a friendly and understanding person has a huge impact on emotional well being and is an enormous support to a young person and to their loved ones.

Never underestimate the role you play in providing emotional support.

For a young person needing long-term care you may become part of their hospital family.
