Android : A lovely Christmas message from everyone at CUH 🎄. Great to see teams sharing some festive fun despite the extreme pressures.

I think tackling British Sign Language is even trickier than the usual challenge of trying to get staff to sing in tune... 🎶!

Android : It is with great sadness that King’s College has learned of the death of Sir Stephen Cleobury. Stephen died in his hometown of York last night, 22 November, after a long illness.

Android : Today marks the end of my first year as a Consultant. How time flies.

So, as I look back, I ask “is it worth it?”

Android : This little singing + dancing llama who accompanied the CUH management team on their visit to paeds ED this evening was definitely a highlight of my day and also cheered up several of my young patients.

Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine!

Android : JC: Tranexamic Acid (TXA) in Head Injury. The CRASH-3 results. St Emlyn’s stemlynsblog.org/jc-tranexamic-…

Android : This month's forum on 24th Oct: ill & injured children. These cases are challenging for us all - rare, emotional & often complex. We'll explore some of the principles behind managing paed trauma & go through the essentials of NLS. More info at facebook.com/events/1197369…

Android : I have had an amazing response to this thread with so many people contacting me with their experiences.

Some who needed (or received) help in the past + others who are struggling at the moment.

Shows just how important it is to look out for each other!

#AskTwice #mentalhealth twitter.com/EMDrLM/status/…

Android : I didn't hear Dr Sammy Batt-Rawden's #TEDxNHS talk but it seems we share a common message - ask twice! #DoubleTap

(One of several important themes in what sounds like a really emotional + inspiring presentation about her personal story #empathy #theboywholived)

Android : Reframing the question really changed the response I got and we then spoke about what had been happening, how he was feeling + how it was affecting him and his work.

Together we were able to make a plan to help him move forward.

Android : I asked him if he was ok and he replied, "Yes, I'm fine", but I wasn't convinced.

Later on I spoke to him again - I said that I had noticed a change and was worried about him.

This time he told me everything... things he hadn't told his colleagues, his friends or his GP.

Android : A few weeks ago I noticed that one of the on-call doctors didn't seem quite himself.

We're not friends outside of work + I'm not his supervisor, but he works in an acute specialty so is regularly in the ED seeing patients + that day something just wasn't quite right.
