Cressida Dick, London Metropolitan Police Commissioner, will join trauma doctors and representatives from the London Ambulance Service at a meeting specially convened by the Royal Society of Medicine on Thursday 7 September to focus on the lessons to be learned by the emergency response services from the recent major terror incidents in London and Manchester.
Several doctors who were involved at first hand in caring for many of the casualties will address the meeting. The programme will include a panel discussion involving Ms Dick, Professor Chris Moran, National Clinical Director for Trauma for NHS England, and Mr Garrett Emmerson, Chief Executive, London Ambulance Service.
Professor Roger Kirby, Chairman of the Academic Board at the Royal Society of Medicine, said: “The way in which the individuals involved in these appalling attacks were transported, received and dealt with by the emergency services and medical teams has been widely praised, but there are still undoubtedly important lessons to be learned; particularly as this sadly may not be the last in a series of terrorist incidents.”
The meeting will take place from 13:00 on Thursday 7 September at the Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 0AE. To register visit www.rsm.ac.uk/events
