Project Main Details
United Kingdom, London
Mrs Foley (female in 60s): I got a really bad headache, out of nowhere. And this eye went funny. Blurry. It still is a bit. Now there’s something wrong with my leg. Its gone like jelly.
GP (Male): Have you had any chest pain?
Mrs Foley: More what you’d call heartburn. Anyway, I took an antacid and it went away.
GP: Any numbness in your arms or legs?
Mrs Foley: Pins and needles in my fingers … for about ten minutes maybe.
GP: On a scale to 1-10 where 10 is the worst, how would you rate this pain?
Mrs Foley: Oh about 4, I’ve definitely had worse.
GP: Do you have a history of heart problems, heart attack, stroke, hypertension?
Mrs Foley: No nothing like that.
GP: Sorry it’s a lot of questions, but they do help me find out what is going on. Do your ankles ever swell up?
Some time later …
GP: Tell me your name and where you are?
Mrs Foley: Mrs Foley and I am at the doctors
GP: Please can you count down from 50 in 7’s please?
Mrs Foley: 50, 43 eerr 36 uumm 29,.. enough?
GP: Thank you. You did just fine Mrs Foley. But I’d like you to go to A&E for further assessment. I’m concerned that you may have had a stroke.
A and E:
Junior Doctor (Male): Good afternoon Mrs Foley. I’m Doctor Williams. What can I do for you today?
Mrs Foley: I had this headache early this morning. And my eye went a bit funny.
Junior Doctor: Have you had any chest pain?
Medical Registrar (Female): Hello, I’m one of the registrars. What can I do for you today?
Some time later …
Mrs Foley: I’m Mrs Foley and I am still on a trolley in A and E…..50, 43, 36, 29,.. enough?
Medical Consultant (male): Hello. I’m Dr. Kundra the medical consultant. Can you tell me what happened?
Mrs Foley: I’ve been through this three times already today!
Medical Consultant: I’m sorry Mrs. Foley. It’s a lot of questions but they do help me find out what is going on.
Nurse (female): Hi Mrs. Foley. Can I just check? Is this your correct address?
Mrs Foley: No I’ve moved.
Nurse: Ok. I’ll get the ward clerk to come and take your details. I’ve also got someone coming to do your bloods. The physiotherapist is coming to see you. And one of the social workers will pop in for a chat with the occupational therapist.
Mrs Foley: (exasperated) I’m really tired. Do I have to meet the whole hospital today?
‘A new role for Mr Cole’ Approved script 17.3.16
Mr Cole: Morning. I’m Steven Cole, the new Diabetic Podiatry Specialist.
Receptionist (female): Oh yes, I saw a note to say you were starting today (She shows him a Post-it note that was stuck to the window Mr Vole starts today)
Mr Cole: Its Cole, not Vole.
Receptionist: Oh sorry. Anyway, we’ve got lots of patients for you.
Mr Cole: Excellent, now where’s my clinic?
Receptionist: Oh I don’t think there’s a room for you yet… erm perhaps you could use Dr Fairlys? He’s not in today.
Mr Cole: oh ok, does it have everything I need?
Receptionist: (unsure) Such as ……?
Mr Cole: Height adjustable couch, trolley, dust extractor drill, lights, that sort of thing
Receptionist: well I know for a fact that we don’t have a height adjustable couch, we’ve never had one of those.
Mr Cole: Morning, how can I help?
Patient 1 (female): It’s my glands
Mr Cole: Your glands?
Patient 2 (male): My neck hurts hurts when I move it that way.
Patient 3 (female): Yes it’s about my foot.
Mr Cole: (interested) Right …
Patient 3: I want you to look at my wart
Mr Cole: Are you diabetic?
Patient 3: No, but my friend Alice, she’s a diabetic
Back at Reception
Mr Cole: Excuse me. Why are you sending these patients to me?
Receptionist: I’m sorry. I’m a bit confused what your role is here.. that last patient? She was right wasn’t she? I mean you’re a podiatrist aren’t you?
Mr Cole: Yes, but I’m a Diabetic Podiatry Specialist.
Receptionist: Well that’s feet isn’t it?
Mr Cole: Yes, but I don’t remove warts. That’s not part of my role here.
Receptionist: Oh …
Mr Cole: Who’s my line manager .. er.. locality manager .. whatever you call it here?
Receptionist: Hmm .. I don’t think you’ve got one. Why don’t you have a word with Dr Knowland? Second door on the right.
Mr Cole: Thank you
Cut to Dr Knowlands Room
Dr Knowland (male): Sorry, I’m not your line manager. But I’m delighted we have a foot man at last.
Mr Cole: (exasperated) Hmm, my role is more than that. A lot more. I’m a diabetic podiatry specialist. I’m here to develop a foot screening program for diabetic patients, there’s education of doctors in diabetic foot care, treatment in foot pathology, gait analysis
A complete blank look from Dr Knowland. He obviously hasn’t got a clue.
Dr Knowland: Sounds exciting. What did you say your job title was again?
