Who I am - Im still the same idiot who wears a Christmas jumper in November. But I am happier and better connected in my professional life than ever before. Social media has enriched my life. Above all I have had SO MUCH FUN. If I can, you can too! But if thats not enough

In Amsterdam this lovely gent came up to me; this is Jens, an EM doc from Sweden; he recognised me from the video and wanted to tell me that since reading the blog post and watching the video he teaches his juniors to use local anaesthetic for ABGs.

Social Media can develop an interest among future EM cliniciansIt has also improved the lives of the people who are important to me :-)
