Talk by Dr Ruth Creamer

Festival Medicine

Dr Ruth Creamer is an Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine Consultant based in Truro.
Having graduated from Nottingham University in 2008, her first job as a doctor was in Torbay.
After training in Emergency Medicine and Intensive Care in the South West, Ruth returned to Torbay for her first job as a registrar in Emergency Medicine.
In 2015 she started volunteering with Festival Medical Services, initially at Reading Festival, in order to qualify for a place working at Glastonbury Festival the following year.
Ruth has now worked at Glastonbury Festival 5 times, progressing to being the doctor in charge of the Big Ground Medical Tent.
Dr Creamer will give us an insight into Festival Medical Services, the organisation that provides medical cover for one of the biggest festivals in the world.
She will describe working with a small army of volunteers, what working at big festivals involves and the variety of patients and challenges encountered.
