A consultant physician and nephrologist from the Worcester Acute Hospitals NHS Trust has been invited to give the 2019 Annual Medical Lecture at the Guildhall in Worcester.
Doctor Stephen Spencer will be giving the public lecture on Tuesday 16 April at the invitation of Worcester’s Mayor, Cllr Jabba Riaz. Doctor Spencer was appointed Consultant Physician to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital in 1995 (hitherto the Worcester Royal infirmary) and remains in its employ to the present.
He trained at the Charing Cross hospital in London and before taking up his post in Worcester was a senior registrar in medicine in the Wessex deanery.

While in Worcester he has taken a lead role in post graduate medical education.
The lecture, entitled 'Man and Machine in perfect Harmony: a brief history of UK dialysis' takes place at 7.00pm on Tuesday 16 April in Worcester’s Guildhall. Doctor Spencer will talk about the treatment of kidney failure through the eyes of a fictional patient, describing how their therapy would have varied over the last 50 years, had they been treated at different times.
