Anatomy Lab Live 2019: The Surgery
Are you a healthcare professional or student? Do you have a fascination for all things anatomical? Then Anatomy Lab Live might just be your bag. Ahead of its Northwest leg, we headed to Glasgow to see what the buzz was all about. Now in its third year, the 2019 tour focuses on surgery and the corrective intervention methods used to treat pathology.
After a Village Hotel dinner, the tables were cleared and we started the journey of a road traffic accident victim. In a fascinating evening we learnt how the patient is transferred from incident scene to ambulance to hospital. Led by clinical experts William Hull and Emily Baxter, not only did we hear about the accident impact on the patient, but were able to get a full hands-on experience with our own set of real anatomical specimens to touch, dissect and explore. The event is perfectly balanced to appeal to both healthcare employees and the curious general public. However, this is not for the faint-hearted as one loyal boyfriend discovered, having to leave his girlfriend enjoying the experience whilst he spent most of the night recovering in the foyer! This is an evening where you will definitely get your hands dirty, so be prepared!
The Surgery comes to the Village Hotel Liverpool on January 25th and the Village Hotel Ashton-under-Lyne on January 26th and 27th. Anatomy Lab Live will also be offering a Valentine’s Day special version of the event at Ashton on February 14th.
