Expanding our global network of surgical trainers

Last month, we were delighted to hold our annual Train the Trainers course, giving 29 doctors from around the world the skills they need to become David Nott Foundation Trainers within their home countries and better serve their communities.

Our goal is to create a model of sustainability in conflicted countries by helping doctors strengthen their own healthcare systems. It was this thinking that led us to develop our Train the Trainers course. What if we could upskill doctors in conflict zones around the world to become skilled surgical trainers themselves, helping them to train their own peers, strengthen their own healthcare systems and support their own communities?

This November, we brought previous HEST course participants together - from regions such as Somaliland, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Syria and Palestine - to solidify their trauma surgery knowledge, while assessing and strengthening their teaching skills.

Dr Mariam Aweidah, a long-standing friend of the Foundation and participant from Palestine, said: “Being part of the David Nott Foundation family, and helping it to grow, is a privilege.”

For the first time we invited anaesthetists to the course, as part of our mission to upskill additional surgical team members in conflict zones, not just surgeons. Each participant learned how best to approach a wide range of traumatic injuries seen in war and disaster, and how to efficiently triage mass casualties.

During the triage lecture, David shared: “Showing footage of mass casualties and the chaos that can result in hospitals without proper planning and roles makes this module particularly shocking.

But it’s deliberate – it stays with you. At this point, I ask each of you, what will you do now that you’ve seen this?”

The group replied together, “make a mass casualty plan.”

Elly Nott, CEO and Co-Founder of the David Nott Foundation, said:

“It was a privilege to host 29 surgeons from across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa at the Wellcome Collection for our 2022 Train the Trainers course.

Train the Trainers aims to expand our number of teaching faculty, enabling us to undertake more training courses and reach more areas in need.

Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine this year shocked us all, but the diverse backgrounds of our delegates remind us that dozens of conflicts demanding our attention continue to simmer worldwide. Our mission is to equip the doctors treating those affected by these conflicts with the best surgical training available, enabling them to better treat the complex injuries inflicted by war.

Initiatives like TTT demonstrate our commitment to making our training truly sustainable by empowering local surgeons with the knowledge to teach our courses. As ever, we are motivated by our belief that well-trained doctors save more lives.”

Help us train more war doctors

Training anaesthetists in war zones

Dr Elma Wong is a consultant anaesthetist in Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust. For the past ten years, Elma has taken several months of unpaid leave to volunteer in conflict zones each year. Elma and a small team of faculty recently returned from training 71 doctors in the Ukrainian cities of Poltava and Zhytomyr. Here, she reflects on her experience after delivering our first-ever anaesthetics HEST course module alongside Dr Rachael Craven.

After a decade of volunteering in war zones, Elma knows all too well how important education is. When she heard we were looking to deepen our impact by upskilling anaesthetists in conflict zones, Elma jumped at the chance to get involved.

“I’m interested in building up local workforces, making communities in conflict more sustainable. It’s about the longevity of the impact you want to have in a place.

The biggest gift you can give to a healthcare worker in a conflict zone is self-sufficiency – the dignity to be able to do everything themselves. It’s important to empower people to look after their own patients. A job well done is ultimately making yourself redundant.”

Training anaesthetists in war zones

“I first heard of the Foundation after reading War Doctor. As a fellow humanitarian, I could relate to David’s experiences. When I heard the Foundation wanted to develop an anaesthetics training module, it felt like a great fit for me.”

In October, Elma, David and a small team of trainers travelled to Poltava and Zhytomyr to deliver two HEST courses – Elma’s first time in Ukraine since the war began.

The team flew to Warsaw and with the support of our partner, UOSSM International, crossed the border before driving for most of the day to eastern Ukraine.

“During our first course in Poltava, there was a lot of unknown. We designed the module ourselves but didn’t know exactly who we’d be training or how it would be received.

In the end, we trained around 10 anaesthetists in Poltava and 12 in Zhytomyr and it was wonderful - I think they found it refreshing to have dedicated trauma training with practical advice. They were really excited to handle different kit and learn new techniques.”

Adapting in conflict

When it comes to war anaesthetics, there are two main considerations. Firstly, the injuries anaesthetists face in war are starkly different to cases seen in the west.

“Blast injuries from explosives are devastating to the body. Patients can have multiple life-threatening injuries and lose so much blood. The priority is stabilising the situation and giving blood.

We taught specific techniques for giving drugs and blood via the bone (intra-osseous), for when you can’t find a blood vessel. Many had not used this life-saving equipment and really benefited from learning this skill.

Many of these cases would need care on the intensive care unit - supporting patients with complicated head and lung injuries on our breathing machines and giving dialysis therapy to people with kidney failure as a result of crushing injuries.”

The other consideration in a war setting is reduced resources. Hospitals may be faced with electricity cuts or low oxygen supplies.

“We trained the groups on alternative anaesthesia machines - very different to ones we use in our hospitals here. They are portable enough to fit into a bag or small case and they can be life-saving in critical conditions - when you don’t have electricity or oxygen yet need to perform emergency operations.”

Teaching the group how to use basic machinery, available in most hospitals, will help them continue to save lives despite slashed resources.

“The rest of the world hasn’t forgotten you”

“Often, I think when you are stuck and living within conflicts, you feel the rest of the world has forgotten you.

But seeing people travel far distances to come and help, standing in solidarity with them, I hope shows them some humanity."

Contemplation on safe ground

“It can be challenging dealing with the trauma of what you experience on missions. Often its worse when you get back home and have time to process things, devastating things you’ve seen.

The more missions I’ve done, the more I realise the importance of looking after yourself. Finding time to have breaks, even on busy missions. In Yemen, we were working and living in the hospital. Each day around 5pm I would try and go to the roof for 10 minutes to take in some fresh air, watch the sunset, whilst listening to the atmospheric call for prayer from the nearby mosques. It was time just for me.

The important thing is to be kind to yourself - and ask for help when you need it.

When reflecting on my time in Ukraine, it’s difficult to know quite how to describe how I feel. ‘Privileged’ comes to mind – for being able to work hand in hand with people on the ground and support them as best I can.”

“One day, change will happen. Until then, we’ll keep the flag flying”

On Friday 21st October, David was interviewed by the Chair of Action for Humanity, Dr Ayman Jundi, at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). He shared stories from the frontline, the bonds he formed in Syria’s underground hospitals, and how he copes with the monstrosities of conflict.

We were delighted to be joined by over 200 attendees, consisting of supporters, medical students and UCLan staff members. All listened intently as David offered a personal insight into his work and mind.

Becoming a war doctor

“Back in 1993, I’d just become a consultant surgeon at Charing Cross,” shared David. “I was watching the news about the Bosnian war and the terror going on there. Similar to Ukraine, Sarajevo at that time was being shelled heavily. I remember the story of a man looking for his daughter. He found her, pulled her out the rubble and took her to hospital, but there was no doctor there.

That’s when I thought, I have to do something.

The following morning, I couldn’t wait for the sun to come up. I called Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and two days later I was in Sarajevo.”

David’s experience in Bosnia - performing difficult surgeries on injured civilians in the freezing cold – lit a fire in him and he was soon grabbing every opportunity he could to take unpaid leave and travel to where he was needed. In 2012, David’s work in Syria began.

The first Syrian mission

“I was in Libya with MSF. It was then that I got a call about a conflict in Syria. I first travelled to Atmeh in Northern Syria, which was very dangerous. The medical set-up was not good.”

There were few ambulances in the region, so cars and vans were used to transport the injured to make-shift hospitals. They’d screech to the entrance and beep their horns to alert doctors inside.

“The hospital we worked in at that time was a converted house. The dining room was the operating theatre, the kitchen - A and E, and bedrooms were turned into wards.

At the beginning of the conflict, there were incidents of people making bombs in their homes. Unfortunately, there were many accidents, leading to awful blast injuries and loss of limbs.”

Action for Humanity

Following Atmeh, David began working with Action for Humanity (formerly Syria Relief) to lead multiple surgical missions in Syria.

“Starting my work with Syria Relief, now Action for Humanity, was the best thing I’ve ever done. They helped me enter the heart of Aleppo, which will always stay with me.

In Aleppo, I was predominantly teaching, so skills were left with the doctors living there. I did some operations to show them how to do things, but after they learned a procedure, I would assist and help. They knew what to do.”

“I was determined to get them out”

Working shoulder to shoulder with Syrian doctors naturally led to strong friendships built on the foundation of shared humanity. In 2016, bunker-busting bombs were destroying buildings and obliterating underground hospitals in Aleppo.

“I thought everyone I’d come to know, all of the doctors I’d met, were going to get killed. I was determined to get them out.”

David contacted President Assad’s office and after four days of trying, his call was connected and he made his case with passion. David will never know if his efforts contributed to the ceasefire that later followed, but he was elated when his friends were granted safe exit from eastern Aleppo.

“There were so many wonderful people working incredibly hard to get a ceasefire. I hope I was able to play a small part.”

Coping with conflict

When asked during a very engaged Q and A how he copes working in conflict zones, David shared:

“You have to be resilient. It can’t be taught to be honest - it’s learned with life experience. There are some things that are out of your control though – the terror that someone might come for you.

After Aleppo, I needed treatment, which helped. But if it’s terror during work or a patient case, talk about it, share the load, you’ll get through the hard times and become more resilient over time.”

A Masters of Disaster Medicine student at UCLan asked, ‘What can we do about healthcare systems being targeted in conflict?’

“Healthcare is indeed used as a weapon of war,” said David. “It’s like a form of psychological warfare. The act of killing a doctor takes down the psychology of whole communities.

We’ve stood on podiums and talked about how we need to protect doctors, written a letter to the Prime Minister, raised placards on a protest in London. We’ve got to do what we can to support healthcare workers.

One day, change will happen. Until then we’ll keep going, we’ll keep the flag flying.”

Meeting Heston

The event ended with a reception, giving guests a chance to meet our team and our one-of-a-kind surgical simulator model, Heston, beautifully presented by Manchester’s Friends of David Nott Foundation (FDNF) Society.

Dr Ayman Jundi, Chair of Action for Humanity and Clinical Senior Lecturer and Disaster Medicine Course Leader at the University of Central Lancashire, said:

“I was honoured and privileged to have a conversation with David Nott. His honest, down-to-earth and inspiring approach engaged the audience and instigated a wonderful and fulfilling discussion.”

Trekking to Everest's viewpoint in Lucy’s memory

We were recently contacted by Dominic Cahillane, the beloved brother of Lucy who sadly passed away on the 12th of March. Dominic, additional family members and friends of Lucy’s came together to raise funds in her memory. We were honoured when Lucy’s loved ones told us they were trekking to Mount Everest's viewpoint and raising funds for us, a mission that was close to Lucy's heart.

Dominic, Lucy’s brother, shared:

“On March 12th of this year, my amazing sister Lucy Cahillane left this life for what we can only hope is a serene and fitting higher plane, where her energy can be used for the betterment of those in need, both past and present.

Lucy gave herself tirelessly to the needs of others, always there to listen, to shoulder a burden, offer advice, and make you feel safe in the toughest of periods. Her focus was that the people she came across in her life should always feel loved and have an optimism for the future, the painful juxtaposition being that she was eventually unable to do this for herself.

In her memory, and on behalf of the David Nott Foundation, a charity that was close to Lucy's heart, my partner Radka Nemcova and friend Katerina Tumova (pictured above) took on a 5-day return hike in the Himalayas from Lukla to Everest Viewpoint above Namche Bazaar.

I hope you can join them in this feat to donate to those who look to make even the slightest of difference in an increasingly marginalised and difficult world where those in need are rarely heard.

‘Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.’ - Bertrand Russell

Miss you sis, love Dom xxx”

We are incredibly honoured to receive donations in Lucy’s memory, with £2,300 raised so far. If you’d like to donate, please visit the family’s JustGiving page.

Over 160 Ukrainian doctors now trained to treat war wounds

David Nott and Faculty Trainers Dr Pete Mathew and Dr Ammar Darwish recently returned from delivering two back-to-back surgical HEST courses in Odessa, Ukraine. The team upskilled 74 doctors in a city battered by targeted missiles and heavy shelling.

Standing in solidarity

Continuing our mission of standing shoulder to shoulder with Ukrainian healthcare professionals, David, Dr Ammar Darwish and Dr Pete Mathew returned to Ukraine in August with UOSSM International, this time running two of our surgical training courses in the southern city of Odessa.

Over an exhausting six days, the team delivered a condensed version of our HEST course to 74 healthcare professionals, taking the number of Ukrainians who have received our training this year up to 160.

We deliver our training to those in need of our help, no matter their experience or seniority. During the two courses, the team trained junior doctors, senior consultants, anaesthetists and Ukrainian army officers.

From burr holes to skin grafts

To prepare the group for any trauma injury, our trainers used cutting-edge teaching tools to illustrate a range of techniques such as how to pin and stabilise the pelvis, drill burr holes to relieve cranial pressure, repair heart tears, prepare healthy skin grafts for burn injuries, or how to insert and stitch emergency chest tubes using our prosthetic skin pads (pictured below).

Speaking exclusively to The Telegraph, David said: “I was fairly sure it (the war) would go the same way as Aleppo in Syria. I knew we would see a lot of blast injuries, such as lung trauma, shrapnel wounds and burns."

David was right. Speaking to frontline doctors in Odessa, they are seeing multi-organ injuries for the very first time, such as penetrating damage to the heart and lungs, caused by flying shards of metal. The confidence and skills learned on our courses better prepare doctors for war injuries like these, not commonly presented in standard medical training.

We are incredibly proud of David and our Teaching Faculty as they continue to upskill and support healthcare professionals in Ukraine. "If I was a pessimist, I’d never be able to do what I do”, says David. “You can always make things better for people.”

David's story in The Telegraph

Inspiring the next generation of war doctors

On Friday 21st October, David and a key member of our Training Faculty, Dr Ammar Darwish, met over 100 sixth form students at Whalley Range School in Manchester. The pair shared their experiences as frontline doctors and some of our cutting-edge teaching equipment, such as our war wound model Heston, 3D printed hearts and model blood vessels.

Earlier this year, we received a letter from Waad Fellag, a sixth form student who dreams of becoming a doctor. After reading our Co-Founder’s book, War Doctor, Waad shared: “David Nott showed me the impact he and his team have had on families, especially children. I grew to understand that the simplest and slightest words or actions make a real difference in a person’s life.

Waad asked if we would visit her school to meet the “many bright minds who are passionate about become doctors”, some of which have lived in war-torn countries such as Syria, Libya and Afghanistan.

“A medical degree gives you a passport”

Speaking to over 100 female students, David shared stories from 31 surgical missions and his time treating the wounded following two natural disasters. His first humanitarian mission to Sarajevo in 1993 will always stay with him.

Students listened intently as he reflected on operating in a makeshift hospital, nicknamed ‘The Swiss Cheese’ due to gaping holes in the walls caused by bomb blasts and artillery. Steam escaped the edges his mask as he operated in the freezing cold with no electricity.

David shared: “A Lancet article revealed that 17 million people die every year due to conditions that require surgical treatment. It’s a wonderful thing to have the skills, hands and brain to make people in need better again. A medical degree gives you a passport to help people anywhere in the world.”

Future leaders

Elly Nott, our CEO and Co-Founder, said: “David receives dozens of invitations to speak each year, but Waad’s message, with her desire to inspire her fellow students to become humanitarian doctors, struck a chord with us. Encouraging the next generation of humanitarian doctors, in particular those attending state schools and young women, is an important and valued arm of our work.

I was also pleased to share with students that there are many different ways to lead a humanitarian life. Your contribution may not be medical but is just as valued no matters its form, be that legal, administrative, operational or diplomatic. It was an incredibly uplifting and inspiring afternoon for our team.”

After David’s stories, Faculty Trainer, Dr Ammar Darwish, talked the group through our one-of-a-kind war wound model, Heston. Students gasped as he used Heston to illustrate the damage caused by penetrating head injuries, the benefits of using skin flaps to encourage wound healing, and how to stop severe bleeding in the heart and lungs.

Scrubbed Up

Dr Darwish was followed by Scrubbed Up, an outstanding student-led organisation that supports prospective and current medical students, offering guidance on every career step from university applications to exam preparations.

Miss Toyin Bakare, Assistant Head Teacher at Whalley Range School, said: “We are grateful to David Nott, Scrubbed Up and the team for going above and beyond the request made by one of our incredible students, Waad, to visit our school.

It was a demonstration of the power of the written word, which can sow seeds, nurture ideas, and empower others to make a meaningful impact in their spheres of influence.”

What can you do?

We were in awe of each and every student’s enthusiasm, vibrancy and determination to make a difference in the world in their own way. In Waad’s words, “I ask you all – what can you do to help those who need us the most?”

Support our mission

Running London's streets for war doctors

We have been overwhelmed by the determination and generosity of our supporters this running season. Here, we reflect on the achievements and stories of some of our runners in this year’s London Marathon and Royal Parks Half Marathon.

Beth Needham (pictured above), a fourth-year medical student at the University of Liverpool, ran this year’s London Marathon in our name and has raised almost £1000. Beth dreams of becoming an army doctor and was so inspired by David’s story that she decided to get involved in the Friends of David Nott Foundation (FDNF) Society at her University, raising awareness of our mission and vital funds for our surgical training.

“David is such a massive inspiration to me. I’m over the moon to raise some money for the charity he set up.”

“Worth every painful second”

Reflecting on her marathon experience, Beth shared: “It was so, so difficult, but worth every painful second. I was absolutely overwhelmed by the support and encouragement we received on the day and, even though it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, I’ve already entered next year’s ballot!

The sheer amount of love, teamwork and pride made for a very emotional finish! I’ll now be wearing my medal for the foreseeable.”

Crossing the finish line together

This weekend, eight supporters ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon with our name on their shirts, raising a fantastic £3000 for our mission. Our Faculty Trainer Dr Ammar Darwish took on the race with his son Mohammad. It was not an easy task for the pair, but Mohammad’s determination pushed them to the finish line.


Dr Darwish shared: “Not sure how, but I just completed the Royal Parks Half Marathon! Having my son Mohammad run next to me constantly calling “come on!” is what no doubt got me through.”

A race to be proud of

Fi Nicholson ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon in an impressive 1 hour 50 minutes – the fastest finishing time of all of our runners this year. Fi has raised an outstanding £1000, which will help us train more doctors serving devastated communities in conflict zones.

“David Nott, to be honest, is an inspiration. I know each penny will go directly to training of surgeons in war-torn areas. If only his work wasn’t needed. I got a shout out from the David Nott Foundation at Westminster. Every shout was a boost," shared Fi.

"Thank you (to all) for the support and friendship, and to the David Nott Foundation for what you do.”


If you’re raising funds for us or would like to share your story, we’d love to hear from you.

Our surgical webinars for frontline doctors are back

On Thursday 30th August, we relaunched our webinar series for doctors. We invite surgeons around the world to share their treatment of complex injuries, some with limited resources in conflict zones. During our webinar, two Ukrainian surgeons shared how they removed shrapnel from a little boy’s heart and treated a woman’s devastating leg injury using skills learned on our Hostile Environment Surgical Training (HEST) course.

Dr Natalia Romanova from Kharkiv Regional Paediatric Hospital joined our HEST course in Ukraine this June. There, she learned how to treat fragment wounds – injuries caused by flying shrapnel – using our human war wound model (pictured below).


Dr Romanova shared: “Unfortunately, we face mine-blast trauma or penetrating wounds constantly (in Ukraine). Every single day.”

Shortly after completing our surgical training course in Kharkiv, Dr Romanova had to put her new skills to the test. A number of children were rushed to hospital after a shelling attack. Metal shards from a cluster munition had penetrated the lung and heart of a 12-year-old boy - fatal injuries without rapid action.

Together, the team performed a thoracotomy and pericardiotomy, opening the chest and heart's sac to find the source of bleeding.

From there, the team removed a blood clot covering a tear in the boy’s heart and blocked the hole with a finger. Carefully and swiftly, they repaired the injury using a piece of the heart's sac, before sewing the torn lung back together. Thanks to their speed and skill, Dr Romanova and her team saved the little boy’s life.

“I was ready"

Before her team presented this case to fellow surgeons, Dr Romanova felt compelled to contact us and share her delight at saving a life against the odds.

It may be unexpected for you to receive this letter. You might not remember me, but it is the (best) way to express my gratitude and it is my duty to do it.

I am a paediatric surgeon from Kharkiv, Ukraine.  In June, we attended your magnificent HEST course. My colleagues and I are very grateful to you for all the information and skills we gained within those three days of training.

We were not used to work with such cases in peaceful times, so your professional guidance and knowledge are priceless for us now.

Despite never treating a penetrating wound before, Dr Romanova shared: “I was ready.” The surgery was successful, and the child was later discharged and evacuated from Ukraine.

After Dr Romanova’s team presentation, our Co-Founder, David Nott, said: “Many, many congratulations on such an amazing operation. I was so delighted that you were able to save this child’s life. You have done a brilliant job.”

Surgeons also heard from Dr Ivan Parkhomenko during the webinar, a junior doctor trained by David and other faculty members in Ukraine earlier this year. Dr Parkhomenko described how he’s “starting a little revolution” in his hospital, sharing the skin grafting technique he learned on our course with senior consultants and junior doctors alike.

A global community

We’re committed to continuing to grow our global network of doctors and creating a supportive space for the sharing of surgical knowledge.

Overcoming hurdles to train doctors in Palestine

In collaboration with Juzoor for Health and Social Development and the Palestine Medical Council, we trained 34 surgeons in Ramallah, Palestine, in July. Despite logistical challenges, our faculty delivered a course that met the urgent needs of Palestinian doctors.

At the David Nott Foundation, we have a strong connection with Palestine and the dedicated healthcare workers serving their communities in acutely challenging circumstances. We first delivered our HEST course in Ramallah in March 2017 and, as part of our commitment to sustainability, also trained a dozen Palestinian surgeons on our UK course. It was a joy to return to Ramallah, seeing several familiar faces among very welcome new ones.

Daily challenges

Providing healthcare in Palestine is complicated by the realities of displacement and occupation. Since 2002, the construction of a separation wall cutting into Palestinian territory has severely inhibited freedom of movement across the West Bank.

The wall is a barrier to Palestinians seeking to exercise their fundamental human rights, including their right to healthcare. The movement of ambulances, healthcare workers and resources is impeded by military checkpoints and arbitrary closures.

During our latest mission in Ramallah, our Co-Founder and Chief Executive Elly Nott visited the Augusta Victoria and Al-Makassed Hospitals in East Jerusalem and heard about the challenges they face in providing care. Travel from the West Bank and Gaza to these hospitals requires a permit.  Applications – and therefore treatment - is often delayed or denied.

Describing the city of Ramallah, Dr Salwa Najjab, Co-Founder and Chairwoman at Juzoor, said:

“I love Ramallah. But we don’t have control of our borders, we are living in a big prison. Our people should be exposed to the world. We are very happy and thankful to the David Nott Foundation, to come and see what we are doing, to understand our situation and see it in their eyes.”

Adapt and overcome

We were honoured to train 34 surgeons working in a number of Palestinian cities and towns, such as Ramallah, Jenin, Hebron and Jericho. Due to delays caused by the shipping company and customs, much of the course had to be taught with a fraction of our usual cutting-edge teaching equipment. However, the energy and enthusiasm of our faculty, led by Course Director Dr Rebekka Troller, ensured it was an engaging and successful course.

Our team, Juzoor, and the Palestine Medical Council worked together to recreate practical parts of the training. Until our simulation model arrived, we used soft silicone hearts, prosthetic blood vessels, and sponges to mimic lung repairs. Animal organs were also donated to allow attendees to practice kidney repairs.

Dr Morgan McMonagle, consultant trauma and vascular surgeon, and member of our teaching faculty, said:

“It’s always challenging holding a training course, even in the UK. When you train overseas, the hurdles are both different and magnified, but we rose to the challenge in Palestine.

Hospitals in conflict zones are often faced with reduced resources. Like any good doctor in an austere environment, we adapted to what was in front of us and were still able to deliver an excellent course for our attendees.”

An ongoing partnership

Addressing the doctors, Elly Nott, our Co-Founder and Chief Executive, said: “The goal of our training is the same wherever we go. To empower local surgeons and share our knowledge with them, in the hope that it will save more lives.

We see this course as the start of an ongoing journey with Juzoor and Palestine - training which we hope will strengthen doctors’ surgical education.”

The Palestinian surgeons we trained, and our partner Juzoor, will be remembered for their warmth, generosity and optimism.
