Henry Marsh

And Finally: Matters of Life and Death

Venue: St Peter’s Church

14 September 2022 7:30 pm

One of the UK’s leading brain surgeons, Marsh thought by the time he retired he understood illness, until he was diagnosed with advanced cancer. In an intimate and honest event, he’ll contemplate what happens when someone who has spent a lifetime on the frontline of life and death finds himself faced with his own mortality. He’ll share the bewildering transition from doctor to patient, being haunted by past failures and projects yet to be completed, and frustration by the inconveniences of illness and old age. But, as he finds himself useful once again training doctors in Ukraine, he’ll also reveal his new-found joy in the mysteries and pleasures of life, and what really matters in the end. Talking to Tim Hubbard
