Who's Involved

Vicky Price 145

Vicky Price is an Acute physician at Liverpool University Hospital Trust and also the current Secretary for The Society for Acute Medicine. Whilst Vicky thinks she is still very young the others like to remind her that she is in fact the oldest of the group and she works hard to avoid saying "in my day"! Vicky has a special interest in Ambulatory Care and is always keen to help keep people out of hospital where possible. She is also interested in end of life care, especially ways we can improve this in the acute setting. Outside of work, most of her free time is spent with her 3 amazing daughters (baking, running, exploring and arguing) and occasionally even gets some quality time with her wonderful and very understanding husband.

Peter Ng

Peter Ng graduated from Liverpool University in 2008 and also intercalated in Pharmacology as an undergraduate.  He continued to pursue his interest in pharmacology by developing a specialist interest in Medical Toxicology as an AIM trainee, as well as being an advocate for Point of Care Ultrasound being a supervisor for Focused Acute Medical Ultrasound (FAMUS) and accredited in Focused Intensive Care Echocardiography (FICE).   His passion for Acute Medicine drove him to enjoy a year promoting the specialty as a takeAIM Fellow.  During long commutes as a trainee, he discovered podcasts and continue to follow several medical podcasts but has been conscious of the lack of decent UK based medical podcasts, and in particular podcasts specifically for Acute Internal Medicine.  Since then, he has always hoped to develop an educational podcast specifically aimed for all those working within Acute Internal Medicine.
