He has worked in NHS hospitals (Paediatrics) since 1983 and as a GP in a nurse-led PMS GP surgery since 2003.
He has developed special interest in helping to reduce spreading "Antibiotic resistant bacterial infections spreading in hospitals and community". In 1989, he noticed various practical procedures performed in paediatric neonatology and intensive care units were associated with increased MRSA infections.
He has been publishing articles, advising authorities, developing new techniques and informing medical disposable product manufacturers about the danger of spreading antibiotic resistant bacterial infections that threaten medical profession and humankind.
He has developed a tool "MAYA" to help reduce people visiting hospitals and doctors.He passionately believes we must accurately diagnose and treat with correct antibiotics to prevent "The Tsunami of Bugs"
Comment on: Surge in abandoned NHS 111 calls
BBC News, today "The warnings come as fears grow over whether the NHS can continue to cope with rising demand. A&E attendances have risen by 50% in a decade and this winter the NHS in England started missing its four-hour waiting time target.Admission of children to hospitals has increased by 30% (Arch Dis of Child May 2013). I anticipated this coming and spent years perfecting a simple tool based on my 30 years experience and evidence based medicine. Doctor are scared of this tool because it will reduce their income. The method I used will drastically reduce calls and visits to hospital. Its FREE and takes only few seconds to register. This tool will help junior doctors, nurses, receptionists and patients. Article in Archive The warnings come as fears grow over whether the NHS can continue to cope with rising demand. To tell you frankly, I do not have any thing to gain but feel proud that I could contribute something that thousands of people will benefit http://call111.com/MayaDev/MainPage.aspx?ss_rid=1001
In 1996, I saw this was coming when preprinted assessment http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1055378/ was developed and tested in UCH. If healthcare can be offered by doctors using algorithms, we really do not need to medical schools and train doctors under supervision for almost am decade. I have supervised, trained doctors all about clinical acumen "The most important but less understood topic in medicine". You can find thousands of doctors who academics claiming to have obtained Phd or higher degrees but miserably fail as clinicians. These are the doctors advising and helping politicians to save the NHS but failing because they do not see what their mind can't think. I have created a tool that can be used by patients, receptionists, nurses and doctors. This will not only help patients but also reduce anxiety, tension, delay, complications and demand - saving cost and the NHS. Let us all not forget we are offering a service and not selling products. Every patient we see has hidden agenda, the ones who actually need help is the one who avoid consultation. These are the ones we need to encourage and make sure the time wasters know they are paying for phone calls, travel and crumbling NHS. Please check out the tool (I have used this method to help triage patients in the OOH) and tell me I am wrong, if not use this and make sure no one gets hurt - this is FREE www.appcat.com/maya
By the way, we have developed Apps that can be used by patients and do not require a nurse or the doctors. The advances in technology allow us to use the app in any computer, petrol stations and even via GMS. Please do not waste time and money on smart phones...
The duty of a nurse is to provide emotional and physical support to patients and their families, this is EXTREMELY important as the patients are in a very vulnerable state, scared and the families are not too far behind them with being very fearful of how things will turn out. Its sad to read comment "nurse don't have the time or interest to get involved with the patients and their family". So we must ask, why do we need nurses in the hospital? What is their role in healthcare?
This is like trying hard to extinguish a wild forest fire. The main problem we have is lack of insight. Majority of doctors in primary care do not know how to define "Inflammation" nor do they think antibiotic resistance is a major threat to us all. I have been publishing articles and videos trying to spread the message since 2003 but failed to help bring in changes. Doctors in UK criticize and blame countries for allowing people buy antibiotics without prescriptions as a problem but refuse to accept that nurses and paramedics licensed to prescribe is equally bad. When medical professionals who believe inflammation is synonymous with infection and encourage patients to consume antibiotics, how can we educate them to choose adjutants that may or may not be the solution. This blind hypothetical assumption is likely to make this problem worse and must not be promoted similar to orphan drugs. The options we have are to make sure the patient has bacterial infection and treat them with adequate dose and isolate them from health young adults and children.
