iPhone : DAUK were pleased to contribute to this @GMCuk wellbeing review. The findings reiterate what doctors have been saying for many years about the links between workplace stress, doctors’ health and the quality of care provided to patients dauk.org/news/2019/11/1… #learnnotblame twitter.com/gmcuk/status/1…

iPhone : Golden from GMC
Rotas. Leave. Supervision. Allocations. Exams. Study leave. Contracts. Dignity at work. There is not an area of junior doctors working lives not covered by this. For those of us who campaign for them this is crystallisation of our core messages. Fantastic. ⭐️🏅

iPhone : “We can’t simply go on the way we are, loading more responsibility onto doctors already struggling to cope. Where workloads are excessive, patient care suffers” -Prof Michael West

‘Caring for doctors, caring for patients’ makes clear staff wellbeing must be central to @nhs care

Android : There is nothing unprecedented about the stretch on NHS services, it is a reflection of your policies.

It is your job to listen to healthcare professionals like The Doctors’ Association UK and The BMA who warned you.

The statistics show your governments decisions.

iPhone : The crisis in #ourNHS was entirely
predictable & PREVENTABLE

Direct result of 10 years of systemic underfunding

Dangerous staffing shortages

Social care system unfit for purpose

General practice driven into crisis

Why we so desperately need the #NHSRescuePlan

iPhone : It’s #WorldKindessDay! DAUK has been campaigning this last year for a more compassionate culture in the NHS. Read this thread from our immediate past chair on her TED talk on empathy, burnout and looking after our colleagues in the NHS #moralinjury #doubletap #asktwice TEDxNHS twitter.com/sbattrawden/st…

iPhone : Rob Galloway Absolutely, completely agree. In fact, I hope you don’t mind, I mentioned your work at the Westminster Health Forum a couple of weeks ago. A lot of talk about increasing places at medical school, but no point in turning the taps on full until we have fixed the plug 🤷‍♀️

iPhone : There are so many imitatives currently to get nurses & drs from overseas for our nhs.

But also need to work on making it enjoyable and sustainable to work in the NHS so that our staff stay

NHS staffing is as much about retainment as recruitment. We need to remember that.

iPhone : I gave a presentation today; was subjected to a patronising and humiliating grilling from the male chair. So far, TEN men who were in the audience have emailed to say “totally unacceptable”, “shocked at how you were treated”, “you ok?” etc. One plans to confront him. Thanks guys!
