Manchester has played an integral role in developing responses to emergency situations; from the birth of 'casualty' departments during the construction of the ship canal, to the first specialist fracture clinic being set in Ancoats Hospital.
Today, the UK national medical response to disasters overseas is coordinated through the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute, right here at The University of Manchester.
Tony has led medical teams to disaster zones across the world, most recently to typhoon-hit areas of the Philippines and also led teams to the earthquakes in China and Haiti. He is Director of the UK International Emergency Trauma Register (UKIETR). He is academic lead for global
health education at Manchester Medical School.
