Added value – a missing link

11 Jun, 14 | by Bob Phillips

Do you recall ever ringing / speaking to a more senior colleague, after finding a worrying blood test result, pointing at it and having the response “Hmm… But have you looked at the patient?”

(If you haven’t – you either need to work more or have reached clinical nirvana.)

It’s the sort of statement that echoes in a quite brilliant tweet as part of our last #ADC_JC

@arivkan “Echo/ECG need to be strongly grounded by clinical acumen & ability to challenge reassuring test when suspicion is valid”
