Howard Steel Lecturer: 12:40 – 13:15

Mark Ormrod

Mark OrmrodMark Ormrod served for ten years as a Royal Marine, in both Iraq and Afghanistan. While on manoeuvres in Helmand Province he was caught in a landmine explosion and lost both legs and one arm. After defying the odds and surviving the explosion, Mark went on to continue to defy expectations at every turn of his rehabilitation.

He set his sights on standing to receive his campaign medal, and the next goal was to walk down aisle with his fiancée. Having achieved those dreams Mark found new challenges, from the mundane, like driving a non-adapted car, to the extraordinary, like taking on a four-man run across America and handcycling 3,000 miles around the UK in a single month. He then competed in the Invictus Games, in cycling, rowing, swimming and athletics, where he won four medals (and the Exceptional Performance Award) and was singled out for praise by the Games’ founder, Prince Harry.

Mark has written an account of his experiences in his book Man Down, carried the Olympic torch in 2012, and works for a number of charities, including the Royal Marines Association, raising money for veterans, the injured and bereaved families.

During this time, DB and TK have enjoyed interacting with many Cambodian colleagues to fund and set up projects at Kossamak, and several provincial hospitals, to help develop the main orthopaedic units and improve training for surgeons and nurses.  This has resulted in better infection control and quality of care. Refurbishments at several hospitals, provision of equipment, improved ward and theatre facilities, several building projects and development of a reconstruction surgery unit (with Dr Ry Sina) have led to an improved reputation, increased admissions and operative throughput. Several British Companies, Rotary in Australia, many funding concerns including WOCUK and Australian Outreach have continued to support these improvements
