There has never been a wider mix of illnesses and issues seen by the UK ambulance services. There's also never been more different care pathways. It can sometimes be hard to know what the best thing to do is. Choice fatigue, along with patients sometime presenting in the same way as others can lead crews to make some challenging decisions.
In this podcast from General Broadcast, some of the patient safety team sit down to talk about what's important when leaving a patient at home and what safety netting needs to be in place.
General Broadcast covers the whole of the Ambulance service, from clinical to non-technical skills, from best practice to learning from incidents and more.
