December 2016 #4PUF

Ciao!

As per usual, here is my #4PUF selection for the month just past:

(4/4) This would also help radiographers justify requests! The more info you give, the easier it is to justify them! @SCoRMembers #4PUF “PLEASE Referring clinicians, put all the clinical history on your imaging requests!! It can make such a difference when we report them!”

bozzvid

(3/4) To quote a former Prime Minister, “Education, education, education.” #LGBTI+ #4PUF “95% of young people don’t learn about LGBT relationships at school. That’s simply not good enough.” http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/schoolboy-killed-himself-shortly-after-9498762?ICID=FB_mirror_mainzenon-bartlett

(2/4) Do you think you might be able to help someone and #EndLoneliness? #befriending @age_uk @TheSilverLineUK #4PUF “We loved meeting Roy this morning: he’s been suffering from loneliness since his wife died but an @Age_UK befriending service has helped…” https://twitter.com/BBCBreakfast/status/805715104322887680

(1/4) Take a look at this #WhereIsDisfigurement campaign from @FaceEquality #EqualityandInclusion #4PUF “Yesterday we launched our #WhereIsDisfigurement campaign. Have you taken a look yet?” http://qoo.ly/ci2mmchangingfaces

That’s your lot for 2016 folks – more #4PUFs to follow in the coming year!

Thanks for reading, watching and listening!
