This lecture was filmed at an event called: 'Battlefield to Birmingham and beyond: 10 years of experience'.
RSM Event Description:
"Throughout history medicine has advanced during periods of conflict. UK Service personnel who are wounded or sick on the current battlefields now have the same expectation of recovery as those in a city such as London. How has this major achievement come about?
This conference covers contemporary care of the sick and injured on military operations, and provides the evidence base underpinning the results being achieved by our deployed Armed Forces' medical staff as well as the continuation of care back in the UK by combined Service and civilian medical teams."
