|Trauma Surgery in The Congo|
Evening talk by General & Vascular Surgeon Mr David Nott
Mr David Nott, General & Vascular Surgeon will be giving a Healthy Living Evening Talk on Monday 23rd November.
Mr Nott has been a Consultant General Surgeon at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital and a Consultant Vascular Surgeon at both Charing Cross Hospital and the Royal Marsden & Royal Brompton Hospitals for 16 years.
He also has a keen interest in war surgery and works for Medecins sans Frontieres and the International Committee of The Red Cross and spends a few months of every year in war-torn countries such as Sudan, Afghanistan and Iraq. In particular, his work in the Congo has drawn a considerable amount of press coverage recently, when he performed an arm, collar bone and shoulder amputation of a teenager, via text-message instructions from a colleague in the UK, Professor J. Meirion Thomas.
It is his interest in war surgery that will form the basis of Mr Nott's talk entitled "Trauma Surgery in The Congo".
The talk will be held in St. Joseph's Church Hall, 1 Bolton Road, Chiswick (at the corner with Devonshire Gardens) starting at 7.30 pm.
The Health Living Evenings are organised by the very active Patients' Group based at the GP Surgery in Burlington Lane. The Group was set up to provide a channel of communication between the Practice and its patients, and it is run by a Committee of patients.
The Group organizes Healthy Living Evenings bi-monthly inviting consultants who specialise in a particular topical subject to come and talk to our patients, as we know that they really value the opportunity to hear an expert speaking on a particular subject, and to also have the chance to ask questions in an informal environment.
