My name is Penny and welcome to my blog!
This all started in 2013 when, as a newly fellowed GP obstetrician I embarked on a new life as a rural locum doctor. It started out part travel diary, part medical education tool and, as you can read, I had lots of grand adventures and eventually settled down in the beautiful remote town of Broome.
Five years on and this space has evolved to become a platform for my various opinions and observations, with more far reaching effects than I could ever have imagined. Bitsandbumps.org is now the sorely neglected medical education platform for my O&G teachings.
Fast forward to 2018 and I’m moving on from Broome for a whole different sort of nomadic adventure in the cooler climes of British Columbia, Canada. Stay tuned for my thoughts from Up Over!
I remain passionate about general practice, obstetrics, medical education, quality patient care, social justice, compassion and the environment.
