Anaesthetic Rep 1

Tom Woodward



I have modest, but personally invaluable, experience from working as an anaesthetist in rural South Africa. I have delivered a course on paediatric anaesthesia in Cameroon and have experience of healthcare in Uganda as a student and anaesthetic trainee. I joined GASOC because I believe that global anaesthetic standards can be improved by building sustainable and mutually beneficial partnerships between UK trainees and our international colleagues in low and middle-income settings.
