Note that these clinical resource teaching documents are designed to provide guidance to assist the clinical judgement of staff.

These documents must always be adapted to suit the medical needs of the individual patient, as well as to local practices and policies, where appropriate.
It is mandatory that junior medical staff discuss cases with more experienced staff and where there is any doubt; the patient’s management must be discussed with the senior consultant on duty, documenting discussion and management plan in the medical record.
