Surgeons and comics have a lot in common…

A fabulous night of award celebrations for staff and volunteer members @RJAH_NHS with organisers, Chief Executive Mark Brandreth and Chairman Frank Collins, alongside compère for the evening Orthopaedic Surgeon Robin Banerjee!

Entertainer Jimmy Cricket performed at an NHS awards event in Shropshire on Thursday evening.

The celebrations for staff and volunteers who work for the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH) took place at the Lion Quays Hotel in Oswestry.

The RJAH orthopaedic hospital is a leading centre of excellence with a reputation for innovation, providing a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal (bone, joint and tissue) surgical, medical and rehabilitation services – locally, regionally and nationally.

Famous comedian Jimmy, 73, tweeted: “It was great appearing at the Robert Jones, Agnes Hunt Hospital awards ceremony in Oswestry last night.

“Surgeons and Comics have a lot in common…We both work in a theatre, have people in stitches, and have to deal with the odd drip now and then.”
