Our first PCP Academic Forum of the 2018/2019 of the Year, which was organised by 3rd year Sruthi Vydyula. The forum explored the risk of knife crime and violence in London.
1) Started off with a talk by 3rd PCP Student, Ellen Richards, who discussed a case she had attended in the last year. With her discussing this case is Dr Gareth Grier, a HEMS doctor, and bought his perspective on this case.
2) Followed by a talk by Dr Duncan Bew, clinical director for Trauma and Acute Surgery at King's and is involved with the charity Growing Against Violence.
3) A panel was then set up that included Sean Harris (PCP Lead Paramedic), Dr Duncan Bew, Shareef Mahdi (Volunteer with StreetDoctors) and Dr Gareth Grier. This involved a discussion between the panel based on a question that was asked about by the audience (image shown on right).
