Have you ever wanted to take a sneak peak in an Accident and Emergency department? Now is your chance!

The following video follows Consultant John Ferris and his team during a shift in A&E at the West Cumberland Hospital. 

John has been working in emergency medicine since 2007. Not only is he a doctor at GNAAS, he is also a consultant and lead clinician for retrieval medicine at North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Trust.

John’s job with North Cumbria NHS integrated care trust involves working both as an emergency medicine consultant and a pre-hospital consultant at GNAAS. It is clear to see that it is a great partnership between the two organisations.

John explains: 

 “These jobs allow a clinician’s skills to compliment each other. Working remotely in a very small hospital requires a fairly broad range of skills and the links with the helicopter in terms of the hospital gaining support from GNAAS.”
