President 2018-2019: Dr David Bogod

Welcome to Nottingham Medico-Chirurgical Society, happily abbreviated for easier communication to Nottingham Med-Chi. The Presidency alternates, as is only right and proper, between hospital doctor and GP, and I am honoured, as an anaesthetist at City and Queens, to have taken over the reins for 2018-19 from Dean Temple.

The series of lectures this year will, I hope both entertain and inform. I have invited speakers loosely based around my own professional interests of medical law, ethics, maternity care and patient safety, and my hobbies of literature and wildlife photography. Alongside the lecture series will be a number of social functions including old favourites like the quiz and Burns’ Night, and regular events such as the book club.

You can keep up to date by following Med Chi on Facebook and get the latest reminders and updates on Twitter using @MedChiNotts.

My chosen charity for this year is The Alzheimer’s Society, and I would commend their website at https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/ for further information.
