A day in the life of an oncology registrar

It’s Monday morning and I arrive at the oncology outpatients department to do a clinic with my consultant. It’s overbooked — yet again. The reminder alarm on my smartphone starts beeping. The alert flashes that I have to submit my oncology advanced training paperwork today and try to get hold of my supervisor to sign it off, and that I’m doing a journal club presentation tomorrow.
