Chris Turner

, , - , Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Civility Saves Lives

Chris trained in Edinburgh, graduating in 1992. He took a circuitous route to his chosen specialty of Emergency Medicine, including two years as a psychiatric trainee and three years in North Queensland. Eventually he found himself in what, to him, was the deep south (the West Midlands) where he became embroiled in the Mid Staffs Scandal, an experience that both made and broke him. He has been a governance lead for 10 years and is a passionate believer in evidence-based improvements and trusting in professionalism. He co-founded Civility Saves Lives with Joe Farmer and Penny Hurst, a grass-roots campaign designed to raise awareness of the impact of professional behaviour on outcomes in healthcare. He has been taken aback by the enthusiasm with which the information has been received.
