JP Loughrey chats us through lots of points about major incidents in this series of podcasts 

Top 3 Points from this podcast:
  • Communicate effectively, using a recognized framework for consistency (METHANE) 
  • Realistic Medicine is an accurate representation of what we should strive for, even in a Major Incident 
  • Practice, train, drill, tabletop – anything you can do to ensure you’ve looked at the plan and action cards and know the principles will help when the pressure (and stakes) are high.
