Miss Murray is a Consultant Plastic and Burns surgeon at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, and clinical lead for the regional burns unit. She has been dedicated to working in the field of Burns since her early training and has completed highly sought after international Australian fellowships in Burns and Microsurgery.
Since starting at Stoke Mandeville in 2015, she has been working as head of department and clinical lead for burns. The unit is one of six burns services covering a population of 18 million in London and the South East Burns Network (LSEBN). Miss Murray works collaboratively on clinical pathways, national disaster planning and audit.
Miss Murray is the current Chair of the LSEBN and the Clinical Director of Restore Research Charity for burn and scar research. As a department, and in conjunction with Restore, she is very active in translational and clinical research and has led on a number of innovation projects, including trialing enzymatic debridement and setting-up a carbon dioxide laser service to treat problematic scars.
Burns surgery is, in my opinion, a great sub-speciality within plastics, with the ability to treat adults and children, with a huge variety of injury patterns, wound-healing and scar-forming factors, complex physiology, psychosocial challenges, reconstructive conundrums and great scope for positive change. I hope that you will enjoy my talk at ECPS 2019.
