February 2015

The President’s Tea Party in the Sky Lounge on the top floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton was extremely enjoyable with twenty six members enjoying a lovely afternoon tea, with a lot of nice food and beautiful views of the area.

Our next event is the Spring Lunch which will be held on Saturday 21st March 2015 in St Columba’s Hall, Pont St, London. As usual, we shall meet at 12.30 for drinks before sitting down to lunch at 1pm. The lunch will be followed by a talk from two guest speakers.

Its title is
“Nae affy weel or affy nae weel?… Medicine at both ends of the spectrum”,
Or
“It’s all about the knots: Vascular surgery meets mountain rescue”.

Zubir Ahmed and David Hogg graduated in medicine from Glasgow University in 2005, and both hold honorary lecturer posts with the University today.  However, their careers have taken them to opposite ends of the medical spectrum. Zubir is a vascular surgeon, training in London and Glasgow; David is a rural GP on the Isle of Arran. They will talk about how their work has both similarity and contrast.
Zubir will also talk about some of the lesser known but nonetheless pivotal female surgical pioneers produced by Glasgow University in the early twentieth century. 

We would welcome guests, including husbands, partners, significant others, etc. as we feel sure this talk will be of wide interest to all. The cost of the lunch will be £15 to include two courses, coffee and wine. All replies and payments must be returned to me by Saturday 14th March so that we can organise the catering with Leonard. If you are using bank transfer, please let me know by the 14th March that you are attending and that you have made a bank transfer to the Club. It would be appreciated if you could reply even if you are unable to attend as this lets us know you are receiving the newsletters.
