The NHS at its best: leading the world and leaving no one behind. Don’t let anyone tell you that getting in to government does not matter. Government is not an idea: it is lives saved, potential fulfilled, a country for everyone.
Life is full of memorable moments, be it a special celebration, significant milestone, or time spent with family and friends.
After decades of disappointing survival rates, various emergency medical services systems worldwide are now seeing a steady rise in OHCA survival rates guided by newly identified ‘sweet spots’ for chest compression rate and chest compression depth, aided by monitoring for unnecessary pauses in chest compressions as well as methods to better ensure full-chest recoil after compressions.
Quality-assurance programs facilitated by new technologies that monitor chest compression rate, chest compression depth, and/or frequent pauses have been shown to improve the quality of CPR. Further aided by other technologies that enhance flow or better identify the best location for hand placement, the future outlook for better survival is even more promising, particularly with the potential use of another technology – extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for OHCA.

Doctor who faces inquiry for asking a Muslim to lift her veil says he will quit after 23 years as a GP due to the ‘major injustice’ of the investigation//Crimson Tazvinzwa
A petition has been launched in support of a doctor who is under investigation for asking a Muslim woman to remove her veil.
Dr Keith Wolverson, 52, has said he is unable to find work and is planning to leave the profession after he was accused of racial discrimination which could result in him being struck off.
The locum GP asked the woman to remove her niqab – a garment that covers the face apart from the eyes – because he could not understand what she was saying about her sick daughter.
A doctor’s quest to perform the very finest consultation for the safety of the patient has been misinterpreted in a duplicitous manner to suggest there has been an act of racism committed. I absolutely no longer want to be a doctor.’
He told the Mail on Sunday he “politely” asked her to remove her veil and that the woman did not object during the consultation last June at a walk-in centre at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
However, the woman’s husband later made a complaint and the General Medical Council informed Dr Wolverson he was being investigated over an allegation of racial discrimination.
The petition on Change.org backing Dr Wolverson has reached more than 10,000 signatures.
He is now considering quitting the profession after 23 years of unblemished service. He has not been able to work at the practice since the incident.
“Unfortunately I’m not able to work at the moment as I’m a locum GP and no one will employ you while you’re under investigation by the GMC,” he told the Mail on Sunday.
