Rhona Siegmeth

Realistic Medicine Clinical Lead / Consultant in Anaesthesia

I am based at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Clydebank, Glasgow. In 2013 I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a Masters in Medical Law and Ethics. My dissertation was on the subject of the law and ethics surrounding the withholding and withdrawal of medical treatment and this remains my real passion. I left Anaesthesia for 2 years to pursue fulltime medicolegal work for the Medical Defence Union, guiding, supporting and defending doctors facing today’s ever increasing medicolegal challenges. Fundamentally missing being a practicing clinician, I returned to full time Anaesthesia in 2015 but continue to apply my medicolegal and risk management skills as Chair of Clinical Governance for our Surgical Services. I am very much looking forward to being part of the drive forward with Realistic Medicine, the principles of which are very close to my heart.
