Gas Man - Colin Black
Event Details

10…9…8…7…6…

That’s about as far as you get, counting backwards, as you wait for surgery to begin – and that’s all most people know about what I do.

But what happens between you conking out and waking up? And what does the anaesthetist have to do with it all? Do they just sit around playing sudoku while the rest of the team do all the hard work? And why are they so obsessed with what time you ate dinner?

Join Leona O'Neill in conversation with Derry native, Colin Black, on his journey from accidental medical student to HSE and NHS trainee and, finally, Consultant Paediatric Anaesthetist at the largest children’s hospital in Ireland, where any given day could end in laughter or tears – and that’s just the staff.
