#EmiratesFACup
It’s Semi-Final day in the 150th year of the FA Cup #FACup150
Although it’s the 140th competition due to 10 years without the Cup during the wars…
Most Semi-Finals:
3️⃣0️⃣ #Arsenal & #ManchesterUnited
and fittingly neither of them are there this weekend

It’s Semi-Final day in the 150th year of the FA Cup #FACup150
It’s Liverpool’s 25th Semi-Final today; (21 post-war)
The Reds have won their last FIVE in this competition (92, 96, 2001, 2006, 2012). 10yrs since their last semi is the longest gap since 1963 #MCILIV

Vague and Non-Specific Cancer Symptoms: A short Tweetorial.
A bit of context courtesy of #GP150w for the #blackandwhitechallenge faced in Primary Care:
1/7 Vague and Non-Specific Cancer Symptoms
Continuing the shades of grey, we differentiate the specific cancer signatures from those non-specific symptoms, noting the lowering of the threshold for Positive Predictive Value to the current 3% level.

@MartinRCGP @rcgp 2/9 See our press release and action plan here: rcgp.org.uk/about-us/news/… - GPs and their teams have played a pivotal role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, but even before the pandemic, GPs were under immense workload and workforce pressures. @MartinRCGP @rcgp 3/9 We simply do not have enough GPs to meet the needs of a growing and ageing population, with increasingly complex conditions, on top of managing the fallout and backlog from the pandemic. If general practice collapses, the rest of the NHS will follow.

Delighted to be living the lifelong career ambition: Roger Neighbour is presenting on the Consultation for our VTS.
Wonderful stuff. #MedEd Patient centredness: not doing all that the patient wants, but putting all of your skills, expertise and attitude at the disposal of the patient.
This does require a skilled application of structure within the Consultation

Today during my on call I was asked to review the following case. The parents have given their consent to discuss via social media for educational purposes:

The case of the blue willied boy.

A thread 🧵 ...The child in question was very upset and complained to his teachers that to his great surprise and distress that his willy was blue.
No other symptoms, no pain, going for wees without difficulty.
No fever, no cough and no change in smell or taste.
Sorry, force of habit. 🧵

But there's been better news recently...

It’s the anniversary of last year’s #RCGPAC when the originals came together to record #GPKipling
We’re socially but not intellectually distanced.
Much has changed yet much remains the same.
Sending best wishes wherever you’re watching this, until we connect again #GPKipling2020 To remind ourselves on how good last year’s conference was, let’s start a thread of what your best bits were: photos, memories, learning, people!! 👇

Going to miss these weekly @PHE_uk Surveillance reports. Very helpful data to contextualise the current status of cases, ethnicity, age and location.
Helpful international data too

👇 This helped me understand why with the surge of cases we’re not yet seeing the surges in Admissions & Mortality at the rate observed in Spring.
It also helped to show its fine for my 5 year old to go to school!

In case you’re not prepared to do your own test, and being told how to do the test over the phone, here’s a thread with instructions to make it as stressless as testing can be.
Please share: it may help others 👇 Getting a #COVID19 #SelfTest

This is the kit you get.
Lots right?
More confusing when the guy phoning you tells you about a test tube, which is a sample pot, called a plastic vial on the instructions.... 🤯

Lead by Example.
We learned together and qualified as medical professionals together.
I’ve broken this one a few times in the name of banter.
We’ve more in common than we take for granted, and we get through this career together. #TenCCs
