Patient Representative

Gordon Patterson

Gordon experienced an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in September 2003 which he thankfully survived due to the outstanding efforts of all those involved, from a bystander who performed CPR, to his paramedic, to his hospital teams.

This is a wonderful success story for the whole ‘Chain of Survival’. Gordon presented his story along with Jonathan, the paramedic who saved his life, at the PHEM Feedback Showcase. Jonathan wanted to get feedback on the case, just like we try to enable our Clinicians to do, and he went to visit Gordon the day after. The lecture in which they tell their story can be found here.

Having heard about the project’s aims, Gordon agreed to become our Patient Representative. He does this in addition to his work as a Patient Representative for Resuscitation Council UK and uses his own experiences as a patient to help us keep patients at the centre of our efforts.

Gio Cracolici - Former PHEM Feedback Hospitals Lead and Site Lead for Harlow

Gio is an Emergency Medicine doctor who was responsible for our ‘best practice’ guide for how to make reports. This was based on work he had done with our Clinicians and Debriefers. These guidelines exist to ensure that the hospital teams create educational and appropriately detailed reports to help maximise Clinicians’ learning. Gio was also a Site Lead in Harlow and compiled many reports for prehospital colleagues to aid their learning. Gio remains involved in our academic activities.

Shadman Aziz - Former Lead for Widening Clinician Access

Shad is a Junior Doctor working in North East London and an Emergency Responder for London Ambulance Service.

He designed the process which widened the scope of the project to include those who contribute to the rescue of a patient but who do not come with the patient to hospital. Prior to his work this meant that these colleagues could not follow up the case.

Shad’s work has allowed a more inclusive process and means that EEAST affiliated first responders and clinicians on bicycles, motorcycles or in fast response cars can benefit from the project.
