Nott looks back at more than twenty-five years of voluntary and unpaid frontline trauma surgery in the world's most dangerous war zones, and he and his wife's setting up of a foundation to train doctor's on the ground in these embattled locations. |b `Brave, compassionate and inspiring - it left me in floods of tears' Adam Kay, author of This Is Going to Hurt For more than twenty-five years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world's most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993, to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.
An amazing account by an amazing person.
