Agreed! Like you in the Uk we have been strong proponents of SSU/ CDUS/ Obs Wards / AEC. We need it more consistently resourced for sure and good engagement with policy makers to make this happen. Problem is we are behind curve constantly

Why are ED SSU’s a resounding success, with higher admission rates & efficiency than inpatient units? Early, senior led decision making - at least 16hrs/day, 7 days/wk. To support & train our jnr med staff, and keep our patients safe. Wider hospital systems can learn from this.

I would also say that we have come a v long way in the 3, 5 & 10 years on many fronts. We should also keep that at forefront of our minds. We are doing many good things that will help us. Staying focused on core objectives is vital. Advising policymakers to act also key.

In midst of thestorm it is difficult to appreciate for sure and pressures pretty unrelenting. If we can stay focused on the basics and ensure we care for each other so we can do the best for our patients to keep them safe in their time of greatest need that is imp victory!

Indeed ! Which is why the workforce strategy agreed with in 2017 if executed well over next 5-8 years will double the number of EM Cons and get near to recommendations Key to helping inc demand and complexity attending EDs

You are most kind but actually EM attracts a greater proportion of like minded individuals. When I look around and see some of the incredible work esp people like you have done Anne - pretty humbling stuff!

Everyone should watch this. 100 fatal stabbings by 14/05/19. 22% increase in knife crime this year. These kids attended ED before; at what point in their journey could we possibly intervene and change the future. and Amani Simpson. ‘Learn, earn, return’
