Heroes of the Health Service

Recently the Irish Times Health Supplement featured two of the country's top transplant surgeons in its series by June Shannon, titled "Heroes of the Health Service".

These two very interesting articles relating to organ transplantation featured the work of Mr. David Hickey and his transplant team at Beaumont Hospital in "Hospital's Prized Operator" on July 10th;  and the renowned heart and lung surgeon, Prof Freddie Wood in "A harvester of skills", September 18th.

 

Dr David Hickey has carried out more than 1,500 kidney transplants to date and won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Irish Healthcare Awards. The transplant surgeon says team spirit is central to his work in Beaumont Hospital.
