Guest speakers will include Dr Natasha Larmie, a GP with over 20 years of medical experience, who will discuss her personal story and how this affects her approach to the care of plus-size patients.

Tracey Carr, who works as an advocate for better healthcare for plus-size patients, will be speaking from the patient’s perspective giving her personal experience as a receiver of care. As well as developing seminars on this topic for a wide range of medical establishments, Tracey helps to deliver training in the moving and handling of plus size patients.

NHS consultant surgeon, Dr Shaw Somers, who presented Channel 4’s The Food Hospital, will discuss the challenges that healthcare professionals and hospitals may encounter striving to achieve dignified care for patients.
