about this event

Online registration closed, limited spaces available to register on the day.

The recent terror attacks in Manchester and London resulted in a tsunami of severe casualties that were distributed to a number of accident and emergency departments in those two major cities. The way in which the individuals involved 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.

This specially convened meeting at the Royal Society of Medicine is being addressed by some of the doctors who were involved first hand in caring for many of the casualties, both in Manchester and in London. The meeting will culminate in a panel discussion focusing on the lessons to be learned from these appalling major incidents which can be applied if and when further attacks occur. 

Join in the conversation with #RSMrapidAct 

Key speakers include:

  • Professor Chris Moran, National Clinical Director for Trauma
  • Ms Cressida Dick, Commissioner, London Metropolitan Police
  • Mr Garrett Emmerson, Chief Executive, London Ambulance Service
