Tom Roberts is an Emergency Medicine Trainee, RCEM Trainee Emergency Research Network Fellow, Crowd Doctor at Bath Rugby and Ashton Gate Stadium (Bristol) and Rally Doctor for the Peking to Paris vintage car rally 2016 and 2019.
He’s 31 years old, married, with one boisterous toddler and another baby on the way. Originally from Dunkeld in the Scottish Highlands, his family now live in Bristol. As a teenager he skied competitively for Britain, but unfortunately there isn’t any snow in Bristol! Tom did his Medical degree in Edinburgh and also has a diploma in Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Tom loves Emergency Medicine both in hospital and outside hospital. By continually searching out interesting opportunities and by following the little sparks that blossom into ideas, he believes it’s possible to build amazing, patient-focused and practice-changing careers, and firmly believes this is possible whilst keeping ourselves and our families sane and happy!
