Working as a GP whether in a permanent setting or on a locum basis is an incredibly rewarding job, although it can be tiring and stressful at times. If you require locum cover it is important to ensure that you have Locum Insurance to make sure that you are protected.  Locum insurance through MPRS gives you a range of coverage and you can take away the financial stress of having to pay a locum as well as your regular staff member who may be off sick or on holiday.

Doctors across the country spend much of their time dealing with illness that could be linked to the way our lifestyles have changed and obesity is one of these issues. Running is a way in which people who may not have exercised regularly can start to bring some cardiovascular exercise into their daily routines. There are many apps, including some offered by the NHS that can help a person get started.

Running is great exercise not only for our muscles and joints but also for our heart and circulatory system and our respiratory system. It can also help us to lose weight in a controlled way and build stronger and healthier muscles. Running is also a great exercise to help with our mental health as it allows you to destress from your day and gives you a period of time where you can focus on running and run through any challenges that you may have in a calmer manner.
