RUH doctor to take key role in TEDxBath event

Dr Andy Georgiou, consultant in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine at the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, will take to the stage at TedxBath's event later this month.

Dr Georgiou, a former Director of Intensive Care at the RUH, will talk about his experience of working in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit at the height of the Covid pandemic.

The two-day event, titled Inter-Connected 2021, will explore how communities can thrive though local and global inter-connections and topics for discussion will include healthcare in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dr Georgiou said: "It's a real honour to be invited to talk at such a high-profile event, alongside such an impressive line-up of speakers.

"I'll be talking about the challenges that the intensive care community faced both locally in the RUH and across the UK at the height of the Covid pandemic and how we learned to tackle this devastating disease.

"The pandemic has brought the NHS unprecedented challenges never faced before and I will share some of our experiences and celebrate the work of the RUH's incredible staff."

The online event, which takes place on 18 and 19 November, will hear from 12 speakers in total, including former Chief Interpreter for the UN, Ewandro Magalhaes and international economist and best-selling author Kate Raworth. Dr Georgiou will be speaking on 19 November.
