Two doctors take on triathlon for Guy Jordan Memorial Fund for ICU

Consultants Adam Brown and Ben Jordan triathlon

 

Emergency Medicine Consultants Ben Jordan and Adam Brown are taking part in the triathlon event to raise money for Southmead Hospital Charity.

They are specifically fundraising for the Guy Jordan Memorial Fund in memory of Mr Jordan’s brother – who was a consultant in aneasthesica and intensive care medicine.

Dr Guy Jordan, Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care medicine, was an experienced cyclist who died at Frenchay Hospital following a collision with an oil tanker in November 2013. 

Dr Jordan worked at Frenchay Hospital but was instrumental in the design and planning of the new Intensive Care Unit at the new Southmead Hospital which opened in May 2014.

Southmead Hospital Bristol is one of the UK’s Major Trauma Centres, covering an area which incorporates Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Somerset.

His family and colleagues set up the fund with Southmead Hospital Charity to support those areas of the hospital in which Guy worked - Theatres, the Emergency Department and Intensive Care.

The long term aim of the fund is to make a real impact on these departments  - funding the purchase of state of the art training equipment, advanced medical kit and additional patient services like a Major Trauma Bereavement Service.

Now Ben and Adam, who work in Southmead Hosptial’s Emergency Department & Major Trauma Centre, are preparing to compete in the Cotswolds Lake 62 Standard Triathlon – a  1500m swim, a 25 mile cycle ride and a 5 mile run – on August 5.
