    Not sure why the junior doc would be disciplined for accurately describing the injuries of un-named individuals who did indeed have life-threatening or life-changing injuries. What would he/she be disciplined for?

    The Trust has comms people. Her words were quoted across the world. What if she'd been mistaken? Plus she wasn't authorized to speak for the ED AFAIK.

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    I don't see why a doctor on duty in A&E would be mistaken, any more than the PR dept would. Don't really understand your point. Accurately describing the general state of injuries received when asked would have been exactly the right thing to do, IMO. If the press had asked the comms dept, the comms dept would have contacted the duty consultant, waited several hours for the duty consultant to reply and then got exactly the same info that the junior doc had handed out in the first place.

    The "wrong" person got their 15 minutes.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    You may be right. But who says she was the 'wrong' person? I'd be surprised if she was speaking without the knowledge of her dept or her seniors.

    She was effectively door stepped by the journalist and was obviously still coming to terms with what just happened. Be pretty harsh if she was disciplined in the circumstances. She should be offered counselling.

    I agree.
    I think it those who think they are the "right" people who were miffed. The comms. dept. bods.
