All day elective operating list RSCH (covered by Mr Lamah if Mr Moore is away)

Make sure that you have read the operating list patient's notes and that you have checked their latest blood results and PACS reports.  Make sure that you have read up on the operations to be conducted.  Let the theatre team know your bleep number so that they can bleep you when the patient has been anaesthetised so that you are in theatres with Mr Moore for the start of the operation.  Make sure that you let Mr Moore know what your educational and training aspirations are for each case.  Mr Moore can then use this information along with all of the other numerous factors involved with a major elective operating list to decide on the likely progress of the list.

ON-CALL FOR EMERGENCY GENERAL SURGERY PATIENTS

TUESDAY

8.00am Post take consultant ward round level 9A Bridge followed by consultant ward round of all Mr Moore and Mr Lamah patients. Please make sure that the medical students are ready to present one patient each on the ward round. Students should ideally take their own history and examination of a patient after obtaining the patient's consent. They should then review the hospital notes and write up their clerking to assist them in their presentation.  Students should mention a patient's age and a brief rounding-up summary should be given at the end.  The presentation can then be used as a springboard to further medical discussion and teaching.

1 in 10 weekends there is a 8.00am consultant ward round starting on the level 9A Bridge on both Saturday and Sunday when Mr Moore is on-call for emergency surgery patients

 

 

 

 

 

 

KEY

9AS = ward 9A south (main nurses' station) RDDC, Millennium Wing, RSCH

Level 9A Bridge = the walk way with great views between level 9A ward and the Digestive Diseases out-patients and endoscopy departments

RDDC = Regency Digestive Diseases Centre, level 9, Millennium Wing and Tower Block

RSCH = Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton

CEPOD = confidential enquiry into patient outcomes and deaths, a national government led study which RSCH uses to label its daily emergency operating list (usually in theatre 4)

PRH = Princess Royal Hospital, Haywards Heath

BSUH = Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust

IBD MDT = Inflammatory bowel disease multi-disciplinary team meeting

 

Mr Moore also conducts private practice clinics and operating sessions during the week at the Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital and the Spire Montefiore Hospital Hove.  Even though he may be working in the private sector, he is always happy to be contacted about urgent NHS queries by asking RSCH or PRH hospital switchboard to contact his mobile phone or by liaising with his NHS or private secretaries (see contact details below).

Medical students, F1 doctors and SHO/ST/middle grade doctors are always welcome to ask Mr Moore for any sort of advice, no matter how trivial they might be worried it may seem.  The consultant ward round is the best time to ask general questions but more private discussions can be arranged by asking the consultant when a good time for a discussion would be on the consultant ward round (often there is time at the end of the ward round for informal chats away from the ward), by looking in the consultants' office at any time to see if they are free to talk or by making an appointment with the consultants' secretary (see contact numbers below).

Medical students and firm doctors should remember that they are also able to use their time to seek out learning opportunities with other firms on the wards, in endoscopy, in clinic and in theatres.  They should use some of their time every week for private study and remember that there are excellent libraries at PRH and RSCH.  Medical students should approach any firm doctor for a tutorial about any medical topic that they are finding it difficult to get to grips with.  Firm doctors should seek out opportunities to conduct audit and research during their time on the firm and they can ask the consultants for advice about this.  Mr Moore is currently clinical audit lead for RDDC and is therefore well placed to help with audit activity.  It is also important to remember that you are a human being and that you require feeding and watering to keep yourself fit!  On very busy days taking a short break can work wonders to rejuvenate yourself before you get back to work again.  You will be no use to your patients if you do not try to keep yourself healthy.

Welcome to the team and feel free to ask about anything that you do not understand.
