True mumblings, from a junior doctor...

NCEPOD and 'Caring To The End'

John Black, President of the Royal College of Surgeons gives this key response to the NCEPOD's ''Death in Acute Hospitals: Caring To The End?"

“Caring to the End?” makes an irrefutable argument for:

1. A consultant delivered surgical service

2. An opt-out from the EWTD for surgery

Couldn't agree more. Without time and senior support being a surgical junior is like shooting yourself in the arse.
