    This could only truly be appreciated by those who have spent Christmas working in ED……
    Here’s wishing all those wonderful frontline doctors, nurses, ambos , police and the rest of the back up team a safe time over Christmas/New Year….maintaining a balance between sense of humour while surrounded by human fragility!
