Hari Sukuraman – associate consultant

Hari moved to the UK from India to take up a job with us in the Emergency Department. 

He did his basic medical training in India and a chance meeting sparked his interest in pursuing a career in emergency medicine in the UK.

 While he was teaching life support courses as part of his postgraduate studies in emergency medicine in his home country he met a consultant from our trust.

He had not thought about coming to the UK until this meeting set him thinking about how his future ambitions for his career in emergency medicine would be best realised in the UK.

He landed a job here as a registrar in the ED seven years ago and started a new life in Birmingham. After three years he was offered the Associate Consultant role he has today.

He loves it here and has now worked for us mostly at Heartlands but also across all three of our sites.

He lives in central Birmingham with his wife, also a doctor at our trust, and two young children.

 “It’s a wonderful team we have here, very supportive and very  very knowledgeable and very approachable.”

“You see whole depth of medicine across all the specialities, a whole kind of range of conditions come across and no other speciality can say that. That’s one of its charms. The other thing is that it helps develop you as a person, develop your communication skills, helps deal with stress and difficult situations.

 “Working in emergency medicine is going to help you grow as a person.”
