Last week, Hughes Hall hosted the latest Senior’s Spotlight Series event with Dr Nyarie Sithole and Dr Ajith Parlikad, as they spoke about their work at Addenbrooke’s Hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr Sithole is a NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Infectious Diseases and an Acute Medicine Consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and he was one of the first doctors to look after a COVID positive patient. Since May, his research interests have expanded to include both clinical and research work into long COVID cases, and he has set up one of the UK’s first long COVID clinics.
Dr Parlikad is Head of the Asset Management Group for the Institute for Manufacturing and since April, he has worked closely with clinicians and the operations team at Addenbrooke’s to predict patient admissions, model patient flows through the hospital, and estimate subsequent demand for critical hospital resources such as general ward and ICU beds, ventilators, oxygen, and staff.
