Publicity Member

Abigail Clarke Morgan

Qualifying in 2007 from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ School of Medicine, I completed my foundation training in the Oxford Deanery and then moved to Wessex for my Core Surgical Training. I enjoyed the logic and mechanics of Orthopaedics from my first job as an F2 and things snowballed from there – culminating in several years at a major trauma centre back in London. It is from those years at King’s College Hospital that the importance of trauma care became clear to me and my involvement in the British Trauma Society commenced. During those years, I also undertook clinical governance work and this actually inspired a completely new direction to my career. I am now studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law and working towards becoming a barrister.

Acting Medical Student Liaison Officer

Mr Alexander M Bolt MBChB(Hons), MRCS(Eng)
Trauma & Orthopaedic surgical registrar

I graduated from Keele University and spent my core surgical training years within the West Midlands trauma network. I am privileged to be part of the Oswestry Stoke rotation, which is known for its exceptional training. I have a passion for teaching & trauma and hope to engage medical students in trauma care across specialties to develop their interest and skills in the management of trauma. My clinical interests are upper limb surgery including hands and general trauma.

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.”
