Christmas is a time when many donors take a break, but the need for blood doesn't go on a holiday like we do! Regular blood donor and #TPCH clinical nurse consultant Nikki reminds us of the importance of giving a gift that really counts this festive season.

"At this time of year, life can start to get busy and it's hard finding time to donate, but when you're finally in the chair it's the best feeling knowing you're giving to others. You always think, gosh, I should do this more often," she said.

Thank you for spreading the importance of giving blood, especially as we near the festive season. We couldn’t do that we do without your amazing support and advocacy. Keep up the great work! – Karolina

In the past 18 years, the prevalence of smoking in Queensland (in daily smokers) has fallen by an incredible 47%. However, smoking still remains the leading preventable cause of death and disease in Queensland. #TPCH Thoracic Physician Dr Phil Masel encourages anyone at risk to get checked by their GP, with early diagnosis the best intervention for lung cancer.

"We know that 1 in 7 smokers can develop lung cancer in their lifetime, and it can be difficult to treat," he said.

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, so if you're worried you might be at risk, book in a check-up today.

Thankyou Phil for all you do for your patients, the respect you have for them and your team, aswell as your friendly attitude to all members of staff. 😊

Good to see Dr Phil getting some recognition for all his hard work, I first meet him when was a registrar working with Dr Kennedy

Good to see lucky phil getting around strong but do miss him from the cf side of things 😊

I agree Jodi. Thanks Phil our shared patients I know really appreciate you!

#legend Dr Phil ... from your fellow ECLP classmate

Fantastic Team πŸ‘

Such a lovely kind man πŸ‘

Dr Phil Masel is the loveliest man ♥

Yayy Phil

Good story but despite the reduction in smokers there is clear evidence appearing that lung cancer is becoming a greater risk for non- smokers due to secondhand smoke from those who persist and strongly state it is their right to smoke wherever and whenever.

Yes, early diagnosis and treatment very important to improving outcomes! Thanks!

Yes, and some of them have oxygen tanks attached to the wheelchair ..........

What about the studies with the e-cigarettes? Vapour pens etc?

Josh Rollinson

Wish he was still with us . Better than a couple of the arrogant fleas we have at present . Scott can come back too. He actually cares about the older CF patients.

It annoys the crap out of me each time I go to RBWH or TPCH to see patients sitting outside in wheelchairs, with wheely walkers, drips in left, right and centre, puffing away. When I was working, if a patient was strong enough to go way outside and smoke, they were considered strong enough for discharge.

Meet Jeleacha πŸ‘‹ As an Indigenous Mental Health Worker at #TPCH, Jeleacha dedicates her time to ensuring patients who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander receive culturally appropriate care.

"Hospitals can be intimidating and scary at times, so I'm here to support mental health patients who identify throughout their journey," she says.

"I sit in on their appointments and make sure they're being listened to and advocated for, especially from a cultural point of view. It really has a big impact on their recovery and wellbeing.

"Standing by them the whole time is so rewarding, I love seeing them improve and watching how excited they get when they're ready to go home. It's really great to see."
