Hilary Edgcombe

Consultant Anaethetist

I studied medicine at the University of Oxford, and subsequently trained in anaesthesia in Birmingham and Oxford. I now practise as an NHS consultant at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, with roles in education and simulation, and mentoring new consultants. Throughout my training and consultant career I have maintained a strong interest in the provision of safe anaesthesia in low-income settings, and have been involved in several clinical and training projects in sub-Saharan Africa. Most recently I have contributed to nurse anaesthetist training in Kenya (2014, 2015) and provided clinical services to enable leave in rural Zambia (2010-2015). I am currently undertaking an MSc in Global Health (focus on Global Surgery) at King's College, London.
