What's in a Name?

Friday 27th March 2020


We have divided the Intensive Care medical staff into 4 teams to deliver a 'surge rota' to allow rotating teams of Consultants and Registrars to provide as much round-the-clock care as we can.


We have labelled these teams A through to D


From email correspondence last night, it seems that some of my colleagues are unhappy at the notion of being in 'B-Team' or 'D-Team' and the connotations of these labels. I am in 'A-Team' so I don't care.


Naming the teams using medical terminology was discussed. The names of 4 different types of ventilators could be used for example?


Boring! I have suggested the following team names:


Fred, Barney, Betty and Wilma or Scarecrow, Tin-Man, Lion and Dorothy or Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Frida or War, Famine, Pestilence and Death - Not much enthusiasm for that one...

Or we could all be the A-Team: Hannibal, BA, Face and Murdoch

As a long-time South Park fan, my personal favourite would be Kyle, Stan, Kenny and Cartman. I can see that Team Kenny would be the least popular but it was only in the early episodes that Kenny used to die in various horrible ways.


True to form, I suspect we will probably stick with something dull...
