Surgeons’ series: chance to join a Facebook Q&A

The last episode of BBC Two’s ‘Surgeons: at the Edge of Life’ will be broadcast at 9pm today (Tuesday 27 October) – but there is one more opportunity to hear from the Cambridge consultants filmed.

A group from Addenbrooke’s and Royal Papworth Hospital has agreed to take part in a ‘Facebook Live Question and Answer Session’, giving the public the opportunity to raise any queries they have.

It will be hosted by Addenbrooke’s divisional director and consultant cleft surgeon, Kanwalraj Moar, between 7pm and 8pm on Thursday (29 Oct), and the public can ask their questions in advance, or on the night.

The session follows a surge of public interest in the two hospitals, which have featured over the last four weeks performing eight life-changing surgeries, some of which are done nowhere else in the country.

The series has received a lot of engagement across our social media platforms and has sparked a lot of conversations around the amazing surgery performed. “The live Q&A will give the public an opportunity to ask some of the questions they may have around the series, the surgery, and consultants involved. It is also a positive way to end such an inspiring TV series.
