Dr Chris Johns: What I’ve learned triaging admissions

Comment

Sensible advice. There's an area between "obviously ill- needs hospital bed for e.g. pneumonia', and many cases that need rapid CXR/ecg/scan or bloods to allow risk of possible serious illness to be ruled in or out quickly and safely- so both doctor and patient can sleep soundly. Fortunately our local MAU seems to understand most requests of this latter nature from GPs.
