  • Nomination for the position of Honorary secretary of the BSOA

    We are delighted to receive the following Nomination for the position of Honorary secretary of the BSOA:

    Anwar Hussein

     Qualifications:      BSc BMBCh DPhil (Oxon) FRCA FFICM

    Current Post:        Consultant in Anaesthesia and Critical Care Medicine

    Clinical Director of Perioperative Medicine at SWLEOC

    Hospital:               South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre


    Candidate’s Statement:

    I trained as a research scientist before becoming a doctor. I obtained my PhD in 1983 researching acute lung injury at Oxford University. Having spent a couple of years on postdoctoral fellowships at McMaster university in Canada and Vanderbilt University in the USA, studying endothelial injury in animal and cell models of ALI/ARDS, I then decided to return to the UK and clinical medicine, and graduated from Oxford University Medical School in 1990.

    My postgraduate anaesthesia and critical care training took place in Oxford as well as the North West London group of hospitals. I was appointed consultant at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust in 1999, and also served as RCA Tutor for 4 years. Having been invited to organise anaesthesia and perioperative care services at SWLEOC in 2004, I was instrumental in developing a unique model of Perioperative Medicine that is provided solely by intensive care specialists.

    With my strong background in orthopaedic anaesthesia, perioperative medicine, research, education and administration, I am delighted to be nominated to take up the mantle of Honorary Secretary of the BSOA. I have held detailed discussions with members of the BSOA Committee and am keen to develop numerous ideas and projects to continue its growth and expansion. I am particularly interested to expand the Society and provide platforms for sharing new developments and best practices, develop multi-centre studies of innovative practices and quality improvement, as well as increase collaboration with the RCA and other societies.

    Please do join us at the AGM to vote in Anwar and welcome him to BSOA.

    Kindest regards

    Dr Bernadette Ratnayake.
    President, BSOA
