Let me tell you a #knifecrime story I dealt with last week as a GP in #Croydon which has a lot of knife crime and loads of chicken shops.
Social services @yourcroydon rang me to ask whether I had any background information on a teenage patient of mine who absconded from A&E after having a stab wound sutured. Didn’t explain how it happened and left before the police and social workers came #KnifeFree
Yes I did!
Parents had been worried about him for several years due to disruption and behaviour problems at school.
Under resourced school didn’t have the capacity to give him pastoral care and asked parents to see GP to get a referral to adolescent mental health services.

I carried a knife around for about 2 weeks in my life, why? Because of some short lived PTSD and a traumatic hood story where I thought I was going to die outside Gala bingo because I decided to go and see my ex and was led into an ambush when I was 16, let me tell you the story
Its first year college, I had a new girl friend and had actually broken up with my ex around 8 months prior, the break up was kind of messy because she told me she still liked her ex and was kinda mean so I cut her off after weeks of not knowing my worth, her bestie was not happy
She called my phone days after the break up and was like "why you breaking my besties heart" blah blah black sheep! I wasn't trying to hear it so I told her to suck out, and she said the words that can trigger any hood man "I will get my man on you ya kna" HA Bet! Bitch
