An interview with Brian Sommerlad The interview was held live on Facebook on the 2nd December. Children who Brian has operated on were invited to send in their questions. He was asked about subjects ranging from whether Covid has affected operations to what he enjoys most about his job. The children seemed particularly interested in the role of a surgeon and what motivated Brian to go down this path. This is a really charming interview and we would like to thank Edward, Tristan, Alanna, Ridhi, Noah, Ella and Willow for their contribution. Brian Sommerlad is CLEFT's Chairman and is also a Consultant Plastic Surgeon as well as being a pioneer in cleft surgery.
