Progress Update at St Mark’s

Our speaker on Wednesday 13 March 2023 was Emma Mohan who provided an update on St Mark’s Hospital Foundation in North West London. After graduating from SOAS with a Masters in Religion in Global Politics, Emma joined St Mark’s Hospital Foundation in January 2019 looking to pursue a career within the charity sector.

Our Club has had a long relationship with St Mark’s, both personally and as a Club, so it was a familiar subject for many of our members.  Emma has been with St Mark’s Foundation for more than 5 years, and had an interesting story to tell.

She started with the history of St Mark’s Hospital which first opened in 1835, and is now recognised as the UK’s National Bowel Hospital, and is the only hospital in the world to specialise entirely in intestinal and colorectal medicine.

St Mark’s expertise in colorectal and intestinal medicine has been amassed over nearly two hundred years. Being at the forefront of bowel disease research and clinical care enables the hospital to improve patients’ survival and health-related quality of life. The introduction of robotics to the hospital’s surgical practice in 2018 represents another major milestone; St Mark’s is now leading the way in robotic colorectal surgery.

This was an excellent talk that led to many questions.
