An emergency medic from Cambridgeshire has become the only nurse in Britain's International Search and Rescue team which is sent to help in disasters all over the world.
Deborah Swann, who works in the Emergency Department at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, must be ready to deploy anywhere in the world within six hours.
Deborah, from Bluntisham, was trained to treat casualties at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire.
"We simulated rescuing and treating people at heights, in flood waters and confined spaces, all of which are expected following disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and terrorist attacks.
“It is genuinely dangerous. We're crawling around in potentially unsafe structures in places at risk of other unpredictable trauma – aftershocks, for example. It definitely appeals to my sense of adventure."
Researchers at Papworth and Addenbrookes hospitals in Cambridgeshire have discovered that a swine flu jab which was given to hundreds of thousands of children carried an increased risk of developing the sleep disorder narcolepsy.
Working with the Health Protection Agency they found that one child in 55,000 given Pandermix developed the condition. The vaccine was used during the swine flu outbreak that began in 2009.
The health watchdog has been forced to take action against a hospital trust in East Anglia which performed a surgery on the wrong patient.
Monitor says that within a month, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust performed four botched surgeries at Addenbrooke's Hospital.
They included leaving instruments inside two patients and performing surgery on the wrong person.
Surgeons also operated on the wrong part of the body of another patient. The trust says it's determined to improve.
We take Monitor's concerns very seriously and we are determined to reverse the situation as soon as possible...
"We will be setting up a task force to swiftly get back on track. We will be focusing on turning this trust around, so once more we can be justifiably proud of our record as one of the leading trusts in the country.
We are treating more people than ever before and our health outcomes are amongst the best in the country.
"Our priority remains the care of our patients - they are at the heart of everything we do."
