Like a blog you’ve thrown together at the last minute to maintain you’re public profile, it’s #NHSthisweek :
Protests against the GMC continue, including one suggestion to rip up GMC registration certificates outside their London offices. On a Saturday.
Which leads to the philosophical question, if a man rips up a certificate and no ones there to see it (cos it’s a Saturday) does it make or sound, or even an impact?
I personally don’t know how I can rip a certificate up, given that my arms are permanently folded in a state of rage.
Meanwhile, a former BMA leader (the one who lasted more than 20 minutes) shared an infographic about the GMC prompting fury from the BMA, who haven’t seen MS Publisher so badly used since their comms team did the contract strike.
Elsewhere, in #FOAMed:
Get your pints out on stage, do a line of coke on the conference desk and most importantly read the memo telling you not to assault anyone, for SMACC IS RETURNING
SMACC organisers have promised this one to be the best yet, with so much of the obvious being pointed out that it will keep twitter going for the next 30 years in twee “get the tube in the right place” tweets.
Meanwhile, I’m still receiving DMs about bloody names on hats. Not really news cos it’s like every sodding day.
Meanwhile, the BMA have said they’ll issue some guidance on reflection. We might have to do it, we might not. Being the BMA they’ll threaten to not do it for 1 week every month and then back at and reflect at the last minute
BAM! have also issued guidance on reflection.
we should do it, but on soft topics:

“No, I shouldn’t have shouted at Betty in the WRVS, but I did ask for brown sauce”

“Why white chinos with a pink shirt was a mistake at the ortho audit day”

“Calling the wife, just a nurse: soz”
In Grimsby, the NHA were narrowly beaten in a by-election to become the secretary of the local branch of the WI.

And finally, the BMA continue to exist, though Christ knows how or why.
And that’s the NHS this week!

Long thread coming up but I want to put my thoughts about #TheatreCapChallenge down in one last long rambling thread before I block everyone connected to it and move on
1) the logic from certain people is:

People die in theatre

Those deaths stem from errors

Those errors happen because of poor communication.

poor communication occurs through not knowing names

If we knew the names of the staff....

Communication will improve

Errors will reduce

Lives will be saved.


A hat with a name on is an example of knowing someone’s name



and also...

Like a collection of deleted tweets before a politically sensitive royal college election, no ones going to read this either, it’s #NHSthisweek!

In the news this week:
Horror at awards ceremony as privately funded conference gives award to man who sits on organising committee for his services to patient safety and we all lose our shit about it.
It’s as if no one looked at the programme and saw Jeremy’s name on the list of speakers and thought, “gee there’s a safety prize, do you think theyll give it to the #iminworkjeremy guy instead?”

Like a prescription written on a poorly functioning and not very user friendly e-prescribing system, it’s #NHSthisweek !

This week, how the Dr/first name debate will probably rage on twitter
First off, Mr Hunt says we need to start calling Doctors by their first name rather than by their title.
Sorry I’ll do that again, in the spirit of it.

Jeremy will say we need to start calling Doctors by their first name rather than title.

Like a monopoly board with no good spaces for anything good to come through, it’s #NHSthisweek!

This week, a special how-to guide.
Say you’ve had a great idea, perhaps you think we should make Medical professionals with several degrees and a wealth of experience conduct ward rounds in baseball hats to stop interruptions, neatly ignoring the tenacity of most ICU nurses?
Or perhaps you think the way to promote the genuinely good idea of getting elderly patient out of bed and dressed is to fill your kardex with ideas for prescribed exercises, so that there’s no space for actual drugs?

It’s Saturday, it’s poorly written, it’s #NHSthisweek:
The health secretary hailed Microsoft Excel with the cells shaded in a threatening red colour as “great technology”
Meanwhile, here at BAM! we too devised a new way of using technology to see the state of the health service in your region

It’s Saturday it’s #NHSthisweek on twitter:
64 emergency medicine doctors write to the PM over the #nhscrisis, meaning 64 bed managers will be angrily demanding to know why the PM hasn’t accepted the referral in 4 hours time...
Meanwhile 64 med regs have been told that they need to chase the result of the letter
