Sarj Sothisrihari

Chair + Education Lead

I’m an ST7 Anaesthetic trainee in the London North East rotations. I’ve been with Tripom since the committee was formed, joining when I was the Perioperative and High Risk Surgery Fellow at Broomfield Hospital, Essex. My main role with TriPOM has been coordinating the POMTOM and Nutshell articles. So contact me to write one; there are plenty of topics to write on. Away from the day job, I’m a senior medical official for motor racing at a couple of circuits in the South East. When not working I enjoy taking my own car on track, and do a bit of running and cycling, albeit not at the same time.

Cat Williams

Anaesthesia lead

BSc(Hons) MB BCh FRCA FAWM

I’m an ST7 anaesthetic trainee in Wales. I’ve been a committee member since TriPom was formed and am passionate about perioperative medicine. Having unfortunately spent too long as a patient following an unfortunate accident just as I started my higher anaesthetic training, I have experienced first hand the importance of providing the very best perioperative care and the difference it can make to recovery. For me this was the catalyst in championing perioperative medicine and has increased my interest in improving outcomes for surgical patients. As there was no advanced perioperative medicine training module in Wales I wrote my own module and was the first anaesthetic trainee in Swansea to complete it. I am keen to develop training modules in perioperative medicine for anaesthetists at all levels and to encourage trainees from all specialties to get involved.

Katie Miller

Surgical Lead

I am currently a Core Surgical Trainee in the East of England deanery having completed my foundations years in the South West. I am passionate about providing the very best care to the patient in the peri-operative period, and strongly believe about improving the peri-operative knowledge and skills of surgical trainees. As the joint Events Co-ordinator for TRIPOM, I am therefore looking forward to organising educational events for the trainee keen to develop as a peri-operative clinician.

Claire Cooke

Treasurer

I am an academic FY2 doctor working in Edinburgh, and am hoping to pursue a career in anaesthetics. I have a research interest in peri-operative analgesia, particularly IV lidocaine, and its impact on post-operative recovery. I am also a keen sportswoman and am competing in Ironman Switzerland this summer.

Nicole Greendshields

Events Lead

I am undertaking my registrar training in Imperial School of Anaesthesia. I have always had a interest in perioperative medicine and have decided to undertake a fellowship this year at UCLH. During this year I am hoping to complete the MSc in perioperative medicine through UCL.

Sam Moore

Events Lead

I'm a core anaesthetic trainee in the East Midlands with a particular interest in pre-habilitation of high risk surgical patients. Outside of the hospital I can usually be found climbing up (or falling off) lovely Peak District rocks.

Sarah Welch

Education Team

I am currently an ST7 Anaesthesia trainee in the Northern Deanery. My interests include Perioperative Medicine and Education. I have completed the PGCert in Perioperative Medicine at UCL and my current focus within perioperative care is the development of a pathway for frail patients presenting for major elective surgery. My interest in education throughout training has led to a number of opportunities; this includes my role as educational fellow for 6 months in the Northern Deanery, teaching of medical students in Tanzania and regular involvement in simulation sessions. I am looking forward to a new challenge in the role of educational officer for TriPom!

Ben Morrison

Social Media Lead + Education Team

I am a ST7 trainee who has toured through the south east during his training mostly taking-in South London, Kent and Surrey. My efforts have become focussed in anaesthesia for major oncological surgery and the marginal gains anaesthetists can make in improving patient outcomes. I am due to CCT in August and take-up a fellowship at the Royal Marsden where I look to hone my previous experience, particularly in upper GI and HPB surgery alongside robotic-assisted and open abdominal surgery. I live in Guildford with my wife, young daughter and, one day, a dog.

Anne-Marie Kent

RCoA Representative

I am an ST6 Anaesthetic Trainee in Peninsula and have been the RCoA Perioperative Medicine Fellow since January 2017. My projects involve work on periperative anaemia, shared decision making, disseminating information about the work of the perioperative medicine programme, working on policy, supporting PQIP and developing educational resources. One of the big lessons from the Fellowship has been the importance of sharing knowledge, experience and connecting with colleagues facing the same challenges across the country. TriPOM is a great example of collaborative working in this way and I am proud to be involved.
