Sample text

This is undated but probably occurred in 1963 or 1964. Sixty-six SCOs responded to a questionnaire and 27 of their responses were analysed. Only three spent all their time in casualty, ten spent 50–80 per cent of their time in casualty and 14 less than 50 per cent of their time in casualty. In the time spent outside casualty, 22 did sessions in orthopaedics, 14 did sessions in orthopaedics with some spending time in casualty, general surgery and orthopaedics. Six had been SRs. Those who had been SRs could obtain consultant posts but this was uncommon and only ten ever became consultants, all in general surgery.

Response: This was not in accordance with the Sir Robert Platt Report which said that a consultant should be the cornerstone of any service. Who Should Run A&E Departments?
