UK Doctor and Family Thriving on Vancouver Island

After 14 years in a family practice clinic in the small town of Southwell, Nottinghamshire in England, Dr. Ockelford was ready for a change. He said he felt new government-imposed policies had changed the scope and tenor of family practice in the UK: “I was starting to taste a bit of burnout, because of the various pressures that were placed upon us.”

“I love what I do, I love being a GP. I love looking after people, and I didn’t want the last 15 years of my working life going to work resenting my job.”
