In this episode, Rachel is joined by Dr Hussain Ghandi aka Dr Gandalf, GP, PCN Director, creator of eGPLearning  and host of the popular eGPLearning Podblast

We chat about how to be more efficient and effective by making those tiny, incremental changes which, when added up will save us a whole heap of time. We delve into Ghandi’s daily routine to find out how he can fit so much in and discuss simple productivity hacks that GPs, doctors and people in other busy jobs can use – no tech needed!

Ghandi shares his top 3 tips for GPs: Do the biggest and most unpleasant tasks first, batch up your tasks so that you do the same things at the same time and – the quickest and easiest to do – turn off your notifications! This helps you to avoid the trap of multitasking (or attention diversion as it’s otherwise known).
