A junior doctor has recorded an album of songs inspired by patients she treated in hospital.
Holly Dejsupa, 24, wrote her six-track album, Wednesday’s On-Call, around her hospital shifts and studies at the University of Bristol’s Medical School.
Each track focuses on a patient Miss Dejsupa – a singer who plays piano and guitar – treated, with details anonymised to protect their privacy.
She said: “In medicine, I can touch the patient’s abdomen, listen to their chest – but with music, I can reach people I can’t see.
Miss Dejsupa, who began playing music aged three, recently graduated from Bristol Medical School.
She aims to become a plastic surgeon and has a special interest in limb reconstruction.
Sarah Purdy, pro-vice chancellor for student experience at the University of Bristol and a part-time GP, said: “Practising medicine is an art as well as a science and being able to communicate with people is a core skill for medical students and doctors.
“Holly’s amazing talents in music and medicine take this to a next level.”
