For more than twenty-five years, Dr David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993, to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major hospital. Driven by compassion and the desire to help others, and putting himself in extreme personal danger, David is now acknowledged by the world to be the most experienced trauma surgeon. Flying into a catastrophe was not enough as other doctors needed to learn how to treat the appalling injuries that war inflicts. Since 2015, David and his wife, Elly, have set up a foundation training doctors in the art of saving lives – those threatened by bombs and bullets.
