- Orthodontics within Max Fac - (not just a wire bender!)

The more complex - high need - and multi speciality problems are normally referred into the secondary care service. This illustrated talk will show a range of treatment problems and focus on the work of the hospital secondary care orthodontic service. A number of treatment cases will be shown to illustrate the diversity of problems tackled and the broad nature of the hospital specialties involved in the treatment process. Mike was born in Leeds, educated in Scotland, Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. Dental degree - University of Dundee, further training in Newcastle and Sheffield. More recently completed an MSc in clinical education. Appointed to Lincoln in 1986 - consultant orthodontist.

Antartic adventure 'The First British Team to Cross Antarctica'

Dr James Facer-Childs

James is currently an emergency care doctor working in Birmingham and an adventurer with a couple of rare achievements to his name. Before starting medicine James took part in the First Indian Ocean Rowing Race and became the youngest pairs boat to row across any ocean after 103 days unsupported at sea. This is a race that saw only 4 boats out of 10 complete the crossing and has never been repeated since. More recently, James was selected as part of a 5 man team to traverse Antarctica, a feat completed by only 6 others before. Pioneering a new descent onto the Ross Ice Shelf down the Shackleton Glacier James and the team completed the traverse in 67 days. Both expeditions raised the challenges of surviving in remote, hostile environments and relied on team work and extreme endurance to accomplish. As a medical professional James is interested in exploring human potential and pushing the boundaries of human endeavour. While A&E is far from the remoteness of the ocean and ice it remains an exciting and challenging environment in which to work and keeps James busy before planning his next adventure.

Shipman & Bodkin Adams: A unique medical consultation dissecting the notorious careers of these infamous physicians

Andrew Johns, Forensic psychiatrist

John Bodkin Adams and Harold Frederick Shipman were both British doctors. They were also both serial killers. Shipman was found guilty of 15 murders on 31st January 2000 (a later inquiry went on to find that he was actually one of the most prolific serial killers in recorded history). Bodkin Adams was never convicted of murder in his lifetime and died a free man aged 84 when complications set in after a fall whilst out shooting. Shipman hung himself in his prison cell in January 2004 just one day before his 58th birthday.

Dial Medicine For Murder is a fascinating hour spent dissecting the notorious careers of the two most infamous physicians of the twentieth century.

Dr Johns is one of the leading forensic psychiatrists in the UK and has given evidence at least 200 times in murder trials including the Harold Shipman enquiry.

As written and presented by Dr Harry Brunjes and Dr Andrew Johns, Dial Medicine for Murder has been presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015 and 2016, at the Royal Society of Medicine and other venues.
