Editors’ Letter 2016 No. 3 – Metamorphosis

Editors’ Letter 2016 No. 3 – Metamorphosis

[box] Our Editor-in-Chief will see you shortly [/box] For years the caterpillars toiled and toiled. By morning, they were faces on the Ward Round to inflate consultants’ egos. By afternoon they were slaves to the SHO. This was no easy slog for the caterpillars. They struggled, at times, to juggle all of the different timetables their iPads were subscribed to. They cried, […]

#Banthebash

BASH: badmouthing, attitudes and stigmatisation in healthcare as experienced by medical students – the paper can be found here. We’ve all made an offhand comment where our feelings about certain specialities become clear.

Editor’s Letter 2015 No. 11

[box] Our Editor-in-Chief changes trains at Clapham Junction on his way to GP Land [/box] Eventually we all reach a Clapham Junction. We don’t all reach it in the flesh, the seventeen platform behemoth, but I can assure you that all of us disembark there every once in a while.

Editor’s Letter 2015 No. 10

[box] Our Editor-in-Chief returns for the final ascent to the summit [/box] Starting a new year so soon after the last has its plus points. The knowledge that was so arduously crammed into your head in those final few hours has a chance of staying put.

Editor’s Letter 2015 No. 9

[box] Our Editor-in-Chief wins some and loses some – but all for good measure.[/box] It is 2:53am and I am sitting at the desk on labour ward with the O&G registrar.

Doubt and Clarity – Alternative Medical Careers

[box] Hygin Prasad Fernandez talks to doctors at Medikidz who left the wards in search of alternative medical careers [/box] February might be a harrowing month for many a medic.

When does life begin? Is it valuable from its very beginning?

By Joe Barron-Snowdon The UK law is unjust! Or at least parts of it are. In this article I am going to propose that there are clear inconsistencies within the UK law surrounding how and when we determine the right to life of an extremely premature baby. By exploring how the current successful resuscitation of extremely premature babies impacts abortion […]

[box] Our Editor-in-Chief talks about his experiences in paediatrics and the great stories that we’ve published this month. [/box] For the first seven weeks of 2015 I am thrust not into the lion’s den but into the ball pit amongst the screamers and the screechers down on the paediatric wards.
