Acting Treasurer

Ansar Mahmood

I have always had an interest in Trauma since my pre-registration years. I secured a post as a Basic surgical trainee at University Hospital North Staffordshire (Now Midlands) due to it being the first level 1 Major trauma centre (MTC) in the UK and having an national reputation in Trauma.

Following that I went down the Orthopaedic route as I noted the majority of the Polytrauma patients that came in had significant musculoskeletal injuries and the Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeons were always in the thick of it!

I moved to Liverpool for my Higher Surgical Training and am now post CCT and in my Fellowship year with 6 months at the University Hospital Aintree, the Merseyside MTC, and am then moving to complete 6 months at the renowned Oxford Trauma Unit as one of the Senior Trauma Fellows. The John Radcliffe is also the regional MTC. I have been a member of the British Trauma Society since 2003 and wish to see it continue to thrive and grow further as an inclusive multi-disciplinary society associated with all those interested in Trauma at any level.”
