#Repost from our Vice President Dr Chris Moulton’s twitter account - @RCEM_VP. Very #wisewords undercutting the humour - we need to support and look after all NHS staff to aid recruitment and retention. 🙌 ********************************************** The Royal Bolton A&E Department’s ambulance well-being truck takes a weary emergency response vehicle home at the end of yet another tiring day. I wish that our hard-working paramedic colleagues were as well looked after! @boltonnhsft

This picture may only look like a mess to you, but this represents the struggle our team went through that night.

I will never forget this shift. A colleague fell extremely unwell and needed intubation. Thankfully they are okay, but it took a full A+E team, medical team and ITU to keep them alive.

It's been one of the most difficult situations I've been in throughout my whole career: being in a life or death situation, but the patient is someone you know personally.

It just makes you realise, before being a doctor, you are always a human first. You can never 100% remove your emotions from the situation, and to be honest, you never know which patient will affect you.

We think we listen to patients – but do we always hear what they are telling us? A few places still remain on the new RCEM study day. 
Read what Dr Carole Gavin, RCEM CPD Director says about the importance of patient feedback and how clinicians can understand the patient’s perspective in order to make better clinical decisions. 
Join our study day on 1 November 2018 and be part of the conversation: rcem.ac.uk/events

A glimpse into the RCEM! 
The College’s Council, which represents Emergency Medicine staff across the UK regions, meets every quarter. They discuss the challenges facing emergency departments, possible solutions to improve patient care and the College’s wider activities, including examinations, regulations and trainee support.

Dr David Chung, RCEM Scotland Vice President, appeared in front of Scotland’s Health and Sport Committee this morning to discuss the Health and Care (Staffing) (Scotland) Bill.

David commented that “this Bill has the potential to benefit patients and improve working environments for staff” but we need “transparency” and social care must be included for the benefits to be realised.

Good point @dralexgeorge. We think that emergency dental services should be co-located alongside our A&Es to ensure patients receive the best possible care, 24/7/365. It would also be great if we had GPs, mental health specialists and frailty teams, amongst others, alongside Emergency Departments! But, of course, let’s look after our teeth first!

Today on @gmb I discussed the health effects of high energy drinks on children. I’m particularly worried about the sugar content and the effect on our teeth, especially with the number children’s admissions to A+E for dental extractions!

What are your thoughts on the ban?
