Breakfast for the stars

It was a magic morning on Monday 31st October as over 70 Northern Clinical School tutors sat down to a ‘Breakfast for the stars!’ This event was to thank our tutors for all the hard work they had put in over the year, and to show how much we appreciate their support.

The entertainment came in the form of the great debate ‘ There is no place for magic in modern medicine’ ably debated by Dr Peter Bland and Dr Kirsty Foster, against the opposition Professor Bruce Robinson and Dr Liz Steel. Professor Jonathan ‘Dumbledore’ Morris presided. Based on the laughter and the empty plates a great time was had by all!
