We should appoint the person who fits in with the unit and who can do the job NOT the best person for the job.... The money wasted on trying to appease insoluble, toxic interpersonal relationships in the NHS is an abuse of public funds.

I have experience of teams sent to a safe place with psychologists to help. Horribly toxic environment to work in. In business, the individuals would be given a year’s pay and told that it just isn’t working. It seems impossible in the NHS.

Writing lists of tasks as you repeat them back also helps. Junior doctors’ first life, medical lesson is to become a ‘completer/finisher’ as quickly as possible. Complete the list then finish the tasks recorded. The second lesson is how to apologise for being human.

Anyone having any implant, not just breast implants, must be made aware that there are ‘Unkown Unknown’s’ that we just cannot know without longitudinal data and that is why every implant put in MUST be registered.

Item tonight about . ANY implant put anywhere inside the human body is a ‘foreign body’ and the body will develop a response to it. Because the life span of the human is decades, it takes the whole human life span to know what reactions there may be.
