Saad Khalid Niaz, has been nominated for the international RCP Excellence in Patient Care Awards 2016 for outstanding clinical activity that contributes to patient care, in the category of Consultant or SAS Doctor.
Dr Orhan Uzun, consultant paediatric cardiologist at the University Hospital of Wales, has been shortlisted for the RCP Excellence in Patient Care Awards for the Consultant or SAS doctor award category.
He thought he had been busy working a 120-hour week in a hospital but that was nothing compared to being the SAS doctor. The regiment could have operatives in a dozen countries at any one time and everyone wanted the "Doc" with them.
I left clinic immediately, with sincere apologies to my patients and gratitude for my SAS doctor who covered the clinic, and drove with dread, my head full of possible diagnoses, like any parent, fearing the worst.
