Trying desperately not to think about it but having been inadvertently given access to all of my GP notes on system one including psychiatric notes when I was only trying to access a copy of my summary care record is very unsettling. I had deliberately intended never to read 1/
any of my notes. Having worked for the #NHS in some capacity intermittently since 2005 (including time as an admin assistant to a #MHA office) and as a doctor since 2011 I am acutely aware that medical notes can sometimes be brutally dehumanising. I understand it is @rcpsych 2/
guidance now that clinic letters are sent to patients but I previously opted out of receiving them. It always felt so strange to read about myself in such a clinical way. I began to dread the brown envelopes with the off white NHS paper that came through the letterbox. 3/

1/ More (sorry) on the proposals for @rcpsych #AGM. Great improvement to have online voting, and separate votes for broadening electorate & use of postnominals. So an update on where I see things are currently and ongoing concerns.(Sign up here:…) Thread:
2/ I think there is a lot of frustration from all sides that our ability to support #SAS doctors (experienced, psychiatrists who make up a high proportion of the workforce) has been caught up in wider changes of direction by the @rcpsych. Their input should be better valued.
3/ The process of scrutiny of the proposals seems to have fallen short, leading to last-minute changes of #AGM process and suggested separation of voting into 2 parts- (i) the changes to College electorate & (ii) introduction of new postnominals (which has been widely criticised)

A compelling message from @DrAdrianJames on how #SAS doctors have been excluded from full participation in @rcpsych, and how this can be corrected by extension of voting rights…. Definitely worth reading, and (thread) some thoughts...
The #AGM to discuss this is now available online which is a great move in response to considerable criticism that an 8.30am in-person meeting in Edinburgh was not a good way to discuss a key change in @rcpsych policy, particularly disadvantaging specific groups Image
There is a strong defence of extending voting rights to #SAS Drs who have felt excluded for many years (highlighted in a recent College survey). I think there is wide support for this; there is no specific comment on why also to international doctors overseas without membership Image

I’m very proud of my wife @HelenRibee for passing another ED exam leaving just the OSCE part C to go for MRCEM.

She is pretty amazing. Wife, mother of 2. Or 3 if you count me. Manages the house and finances and organising, even when I do try and share this.


She has also had a more convoluted career journey than I have (and I’m currently st9 equiv with 18 mo this to go).

She was an ortho reg for 6 years. She wasn’t a trainee. But she was pretty boss. The ‘boys’ would often not stand a chance.


She went on may leave for our first, B, and whilst away from work had a radical change of heart and decided to go back switching to ED.

She *chose* not to go into training. Trainees in the region get flung all over the god-darn area.

Child. Life. Etc. Plus all …

.@vpecresse a présenté hier son programme Santé pour 2022 : « Un plan d’urgence pour la santé ». On fait le point ⤵️ #Thread
Tout d’abord, le diagnostic. Nous posons le même diagnostic sur le système de santé, les difficultés d’accès au soin, l’hôpital, les perspectives à 2030. Depuis 2017, la majorité agit et @vpecresse semble vouloir poursuivre bon nombre de nos orientations. ⤵️
Proposition n°1 @vpecresse : Recruter 25000 soignants supplémentaires en 5 ans à l’hôpital public. Comment ?
Aujourd’hui des postes sont vacants. Nous avons créé 4000 places supplémentaires en formation et avons revalorisé les soignants avec le #SégurDeLaSanté. #Attractivité ⤵️

#OTD Lt Jock Lewes, original #SAS officer, was killed in action

David Stirling persuaded him to join in Aug 41: "I finally resigned myself to serving in the Middle East for the duration, and as a result here I am, second-in-command of a detachment of parachutists and liking it."
Aside from inventing the Lewes Bomb to destroy enemy aircraft on SAS raids, he designed the unit's wings. Stirling, educated at Cambridge, chose the primary colour as Cambridge Blue whilst Lewes added the darker Oxford Blue. They were produced in Cairo by tailors John Jones & Co.
The wings could be privately purchased by anyone producing an issued chit as proof of qualification (personal interview with Bob McDougall, 2007).

The set seen in this thread are one of three bought by McDougall in early 1943, by which time their execution had been refined.

How can I start a career in #risk management in the financial services industry?
@GARP_Risk @PRMIA @RIMSorg @actuarynews @SOActuaries @CQFInstitute @CFAinstitute
I believe they are many degrees that can be a good value for money, provided you know where you would like to work in the long run.
In the developing world markets, employers still don't appreciate highly technical education in risk, actuarial sciences, financial engineering, quantitative economics, machine learning, etc.

For them, an #MBA is a be-all and an end-all troubleshooter.

ini #CeritaRumah @S_ArsitektropiS yang dibangun di kawasan banjir Ibukota. Kelapa Gading

A thread;
Jadi begini, ini adalah proyek pertama kali #SAS (Studio ArsitektropiS) di kelapa gading. Jelas masalah utama di sini ya banjir. Meskipun ini proyek pertama, tp jangan kuatir, arsiteknya sudah kenyang sama air karena selalu jadi korban banjir sejak tahun 96!
karena sesama warga kelapa gading, jadi waktu klien dateng pertama kali, lgsg berchemistry. Ibarat kata, cmn saling menatap mata aja dah paham maunya apa 🥴

1. Secret trials in 🇦🇺? Surely not. Expunging the convicted's name from public record? It couldn't happen here could it?

READ ON... It happened to @WitnessJ8

"Who is Canberra’s mysterious ‘secret prisoner’?" By Robert Macklin

#Auspol @OZloop #WintessJ…
2. Author ROBERT MACKLIN finds himself drawn into murky, security intrigue as Canberra’s “secret prisoner”, an Australian soldier stripped by the government of his real name, takes on the Alexander Maconochie Centre in court. Who is this man and what is his story? 

3. THERE is no end to the cost of war. The battlefield casualties grab the headlines, but so many of its crises take place behind the darkened shutters of our hospitals and, occasionally, our courtrooms.

One occurred in Canberra’s Supreme Court 4 last Friday (November 8).
