Doctor's notes just the job in talk to Rotarians

One of the Rotary Club's newest members has given a fascinating talk about his job.

Jo Chan, who qualified as a doctor in Manchester in 1979, worked in hospitals in the North West.

His talk revealed the pitfalls and successes of his profession, time being spent in frantic and life saving activity and also periods of boredom and hopefully, rest.

Members heard that in 1984, he joined the Clinical Research Centre in Harrow, later specialising in molecular genetics at the Institute of Child Health. One example of the dangers of complacency and jumping to conclusions was a man who appeared dead on arrival and had no apparent pulse was in fact alive and survived. Things are not always what they seem to be. He told members that conditions that appear dire may have a silver lining, and symptoms that seem trivial may not be. Since retiring in 2013, Jo has studied Roman History at U3A.

Thank you to the Cambridge News August 22, 2015.

Advantages of Rotary Membership

Rotary is a membership organisation open to men and women.

We like to ensure that the membership of our Club is as representative as possible of the Cambridge business and professional community.

It provides the opportunity for busy people to get to know a broad spectrum of local people who perhaps they would not otherwise meet.
