Dr. Beth Goundry is a prime example of what makes this country great. In particular, she is an example of what makes this country's healthcare system great. She is a junior doctor at the University Hospitals Leicester, but it isn't the long hours she does or the dreadful shift patterns that make her special. It is quite simply her incredible dedication to her patients. I have never seen any other junior show such incredible determination to get the absolute best for those she cares for. She gives her time freely in order to understand what needs her patients need addressing, even when that time is outside her working hours. When she encounters obstacles in achieving these aims she is relentless in her persistence to get what she feels is the best outcome for her patient, where most other juniors would sadly either feel these issues were beyond their experience or not have the time to deal with fully. When things don't go as well they should, she can't help but take it to heart, and will these issues home with her and continue to work them over in her mind, when really should be letting her mind unwind. I know that Beth's determination is an inspiration to many junior doctors including myself. She is an incredibly important reminder that in this paper-work strewn, bureaucracy filled NHS, it is the patient that is the most important element in everything we do. I think she deserves to be in this relay as she is an inspiration in the most challenging of environments.
