Charity Channel Crossing

Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Richard Baker is swapping his scalpel for his swimming trunks when he takes part in a charity Channel crossing this summer.

Mr Baker is swimming the English Channel as a member of a six man team - in preparation for a future solo attempt!

The Spire Bristol Hospital is proud to sponsor the consultant orthopaedic surgeon who specialises in hip and knee replacement surgery, for this event, which will raise vital funds for Diabetes UK.

Diabetes affects over three million adults in the United Kingdom and can affect the outcome for patients undergoing joint replacement surgery.

Diabetes UK funds invaluable research into Diabetes to improve its treatment and any advances in its management are welcomed to improve the surgical care of these patients.

Dr Johnson, a diabetes specialist, is also available at the Spire Bristol Hospital for consultations.
