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!”


(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.

#TOTW from 10-12-16 ‘#StandUpSpeakOut’


I realise my #TOTW hasn’t been as regular a slot as it used to be of late, and i’m not sure if it will survive into the new year, but we’ll see! In the meantime however, I’d like to draw attention once again to the following tweet from last week:

“Local steps make global movements.” Will you stand up for someone’s rights today?


Don’t stand by while haters drive wedges of hostility between communities – build bridges. #StandUp4HumanRights on #HumanRightsDay

Now it seems to be that every day is a special day of some sort, whether it be an awareness day, a celebrate this day, or a remember this day…day! However, the other day was #HumanRightsDay, and as a lot of the things I tweet about relate in most part to peoples’ human rights I just wanted to flag up the day and what can be done to help others who need people to #StandUpSpeakOut on their behalf. You don’t have to be a member of a particular group of people that are being abused or oppressed in order to speak out on their behalf. If you feel strongly enough that the way people are being treated because of their race, religion, sexuality, disability etc is wrong, then just do it – speak out and highlight their plight to others. Help educate those who for some reason or another have an opinion that is not based on fact, and who just speak before considering the consequences of what they say or do.

It is all our responsibility to speak out for those who are discriminated against because they are considered different to the “norm.” When people don’t understand something, or someone, they have a choice. They can either educate themselves and learn to accept and get along with others who are different to them, or they can continue to discriminate against them.

Make it your goal to help educate others so that we can learn to get along in this World.

What do you say? Give it a go?

Go on…
