Kevin Jones qualified in Medicine from Liverpool University. He spent four years on the Heart-Lung Transplant team at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, six years at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, and is now an NHS Consultant Physician in Northern England. He has been on the after-dinner speaking circuit for 30 years and is probably the best and funniest there is. He has spoken with celebrities like Stephen Fry, John Bishop and Michael McIntyre. This presentation is a funny, poignant one-man show which celebrates the dark comedy inherent in hospital medicine.
