  • Neurosurgeon Henry Marsh Talk at Dulwich Books –  SOLD OUT

    Neurosurgeon Henry Marsh Talk at Dulwich Books – SOLD OUT

    02 Dec 2014 19:00

    Join us on Thursday 4th December at 7pm to hear renowned neurosurgeon tell his story and what his thoughts are on the NHS.

     

    What is it like to be a brain surgeon? How does it feel to hold someone’s life in your hands, to cut through the stuff that creates thought, feeling and reason? How do you live with the consequences of performing a potentially life-saving operation when it all goes wrong? ‘Do No Harm’ is an unforgettable insight into the career of one of the country’s leading neurosurgeons, and into the countless human dramas that take place in a busy modern hospital. Above all, it is a lesson in the need for hope when faced with life’s most difficult decisions.

     

    This event will be held in Dulwich Books on Thursday 4th December at 7pm.

     

    Tickets are £7 and include a copy of ‘Do No Harm’ available from http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/henry-marsh-talk-at-dulwich-books-thursday-4th-december-7pm-tickets-12542618309?aff=eorg, via telephone on 020 8670 1920, via email: dulwichbooks@yahoo.co.uk or in person in the bookshop.
