2018-19 Miss Susie Hewitt
Miss Susie Hewitt qualified with an honours degree in Medicine in 1987. She was appointed to a Consultant post in Emergency Medicine in Derby with special interest in children and young people in 1995 not long after the birth of her daughter, Sophie.
At that time she joined just two existing consultants in Emergency Medicine as the first female EM consultant and apparently the youngest consultant ever appointed in Derby. Susie now works in a team of 22 Consultants in Emergency Medicine and 4 Consultants in Paediatric Emergency Medicine.
Susie led on a 10-year project to redesign a new build ED and relocate all acute services to one site. Her only claim to fame is appearing in all four episodes of the Channel 4 programme “Superhospital”!
She has a special interest in the legal aspects of medicine and specifically inquest work, having written over 130 reports for HM Coroner and appearing in Court to give evidence on around 40 occasions.
Susie is an examiner for the Royal College of Emergency Medicine and a member of a number of College committees, currently sitting on the RCEM Sustainable Working Practices Committee. Susie is a co-author of the 2012 and 2018 Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health Intercollegiate Standards for Urgent and Emergency Care for Children.
Susie’s personal perspective on what happens when personal and professional pressures collide is one of the inspirations for her passion for wellbeing in Emergency Medicine.
In 2017, Susie was awarded the RCEM president’s medal for her contribution to Emergency Medicine. In August 2018, Sophie follows in her mother’s footsteps as she embarks on her own career in medicine.
Susie maintains a sense of equilibrium by swimming, or pottering in the garden preferably in the sunshine.
