Professor Chris Lavy was mentioned in Parliament last week in a discussion related to his work in pioneering orthopaedic care in Africa.

Professor Chris Lavywas mentioned in Parliament last week by Lord Crisp. The house of Lords was asked by Lord Ribeiro whether Her Majesty's Government would support the strengthening of emergency and essential surgical care and anaesthesia by the World Health Organisation to reduce the global burden of disease.

Lord Crisp, who was Chief Executive of the NHS from 2000-06, noted:

I also think of people such as Professor Chris Lavy, professor of trauma at Oxford University, who has trained orthopaedic clinical officers in Malawi. Therefore, we have a lot to offer in terms of training. Professor Lavy has a long history of work in sub-Saharan Africa and, since 2012, has been one of the leaders of the COOL (COSECSA Oxford Orthopaedic Link) programme.
