Day 13 – Sam Cockburn

1. What is your job title and where do you work?

I’m one of the respiratory and general medicine registrars, so I spend most of my time on the Medical Assessment Unit (MAU) or Glossop Ward.

2. What says ‘Christmas’ to you?

Christmas is all about Christmas films for me – from modern day favourites like The Holiday to classics like White Christmas. It’s always been a family tradition to watch one on Christmas Eve before going to bed.

3. Top tip for a great Christmas?

Get some Tarquins Figgy Pudding Gin – I tried it for the first time this weekend and it’s like Christmas in a glass!

4. Is there anything that happened in 2019 that you feel thankful for, or anyone you’d like to thank?

I’m most grateful for the safe arrival of my niece. My sister and brother-in-law had their first child back in April and as a result I became an aunt for the first time. It’s so lovely watching her grow up and getting to be a part of her life.

5. Have you got a goal for 2020?

We’re getting married in June so mainly just enjoying the build up to it and then the day itself. We also have our honeymoon later in the year as well.
