About this event
From his early days growing up and studying in Manchester, Dr Redmond’s long and illustrious career as an A&E doctor has seen him on the frontline of countless international emergencies such as the Lockerbie bombing, the Ebola crisis, in Sarajevo, the Yerevan earthquake in Armenia and more recently as the Medical Director of Manchester’s Nightingale Hospital.
Currently the Emeritus Professor of International Emergency Medicine at the University of Manchester, Dr Redmond is the founder of NGO UK-Med and has also worked with the UN, DFID and the WHO, to deliver emergency care to those in need around the world.
In addition, he has also personally managed to survive heavy metal poisoning, an attack of malaria and becoming temporarily paralysed.
Hear how life-or-death choices are made in the heat of the moment. What are the consequences of your actions? Or inactions? Is it better at times to do nothing? How do you live with yourself if you want to help but can’t?
Frontline: Saving Lives in War, Disaster and Disease (HarperNorth) is a frank account of the personal toll – physical, mental and social – emergency medicine levies on those who choose to do it.
Dr Redmond will be signing copies of his new book later in the evening.
Please note – COVID-19 precautions will be adhered to in order to ensure the safety of attendees, authors and booksellers.
