Sarah Faloon, an undergraduate medical student who took our second-year History of Surgery module last year, has won the undergraduate essay prize of the Society for the Social History of Medicine. Sarah wrote on surgical innovations at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast during the Troubles in North Ireland. Her article,  ‘Medical Innovation in a Period of Conflict: The Hospital with a Warzone on its Doorstep ’, will be published on the SSHM’s website in February.

Sarah was born in the Royal Victoria Hospital and has sent us the following photo  with her as a baby with her mother Alison and siblings Carol and Paul, May 1992.
