Mike Lavelle-JonesThe Presidents of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Mr Mike Lavelle-Jones, shares his thoughts on the recent events in Paris and throughout the world:

"In the wake of the tragic events in Paris on the evening of Friday 13 November, and those which have happened and continue to happen throughout the world, it seems a good time to reflect on the unity and commonality to be found amongst colleagues in healthcare across the globe.

"The College values its Fellows and Members of all nationalities and respects their cultures. We welcome the knowledge that we are all bound together by our common ideal of delivering the best possible patient care to the highest possible standard in all circumstances, wherever we live."
