Thank you, Sir Magdi, you saved my sister’s life

Yacoub 023Not many people get to personally thank the world-leading heart surgeon, Sir Magdi Yacoub for saving their sister’s life but Andy Baines, Head of English at The Petchey Academy, was able to do exactly that. Andy’s sister had required major heart surgery some years ago and the pioneering treatment developed and delivered by Sir Magdi literally saved her life. This made for a rather moving encounter on the day that Sir Magdi visited The Petchey Academy, whose specialism is Health, Care and Medical Sciences. It was also an inspirational visit for many students who got the opportunity to debate in front of Sir Magdi and then discuss his own career over an informal lunch.  Click on the photo to see a few more pictures of  that day
