Just started at Emergency Department and I’ve noticed something great - Consultants who introduce themselves by their first names to juniors creates a lovely open and approachable learning and working environment. Why don’t we do this everywhere?

True - I think though even at a young age (18) lots of those who face a choice between one career and medicine often go for medicine and regret later they jumped into it so early. (sure there are others who see it in reverse as well!)

I remember getting wildly pillioried a couple of years ago for suggesting many doctors weren’t brave enough to do what they really wanted to do as ultimately medicine was deemed more secure! I wish I had seen how far I could have got with steeplechasing (running)

Indeed. Additionally streaming to primary care should not be seen as attending inappropriately - more so that they were hopefully better served seeing a clinician with a different skill set. Seeing it as otherwise is backward and fails to recognise current demand on our services.

Just to highlight that only 20% of our attendances went to a primary care stream, and while some of our injuries could probably have been seen by another provider, we are far off 40% of attendances being ‘inappropriate’ (or similarly loaded term)

Lots (and I mean lots) of confounders here but fascinating premise and data to explore.. “Antibiotic exposure and ‘response failure’ for subsequent respiratory tract infections: an observational cohort study of UK preschool children in primary care”
