Dr John Hinds whom many of you will know from his legendary appearances at SMACC, died yesterday from injuries sustained whilst providing medical cover at a motorsports event in Ireland.

All of us at ETM are deeply saddened by the loss of such an amazing trauma practitioner and educator.

The ETM flag is flying at half mast today.
