Happy return to work for Jimmy

It has been a welcome return to work for well-known Solihull surgeon Mr Gamal Barsoum following five-months of extended leave.

Mr Barsoum, better known as Jimmy, is a popular face around the Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull.

The surgeon, whose special clinical interests include colorectal cancer, gall bladder diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and laparoscopic surgery, has worked in the Solihull area for over 20 years.

At Spire Parkway pre-assessment sister Louise Cassidy said: “It really is great to seem Mr Barsoum buzzing about again. He is always smiling and the patients just love him. He certainly has been missed and it’s good to have him back.”
