The David Nott Foundation

On the 5th June 2016, I listened to a BBC podcast of Kirsty Young's weekly program entitled, "Desert Island Discs".  Kirsty Young's castaway and interviewed guest was a British surgeon called Dr David Nott. I found the candid interview with 
Dr David Nott very touching and moving. Dr Nott spoke with such humility, it was inspirational to listen to him recounting his experiences in war-torn countries around the world performing surgeries in less than ideal conditions and operating on people regardless of their religion, race or political affiliation with the sole objective of saving lives. 

Kirsty Young introduced him by saying, "he works across three London hospitals performing general, vascular, trauma and reconstructive surgery.  In addition, for the past two decades, he has spent several weeks every year working in conflict zones around the world for Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Here are the links to the BBC podcast for your information:

In 2015, Dr David Nott together with his wife Elly set up the David Nott Foundation a UK registered charity with the aim of providing skills and medical expertise to surgeons who operate "in conflict and natural disaster zones around the world."  

 I wanted to use my blog as a platform to highlight the work of The David Nott Foundation so that people around the world could if they wished donate funds.  Further information can be obtained directly from
