    Thanks for your comments. By improving our service and being available to everyone, we may have made our ED services unsustainable. We need a system to allow senior, pragmatic clinicians to reassure people who are safe to wait until the symptoms improve, or to see their GP next day, without fear and blame. Tjis includes residents of nursing homes.

    We are healthier and longer-lived than ever before, but more fearful than ever before.

    ED clinicians need to be able to see the very sick or injured and the high-risk quickly, taking the time that is required, and having access to ward beds when ED care is complete. We understand the fear and discomfort that leads people to wait for hours in the Emergency Department. We need systems, such as senior doctors using telemedicine, to problem-solve and guide patients about the urgency of their condition.
