Dr Jack Roberts: Lost in the ether: missing perspectives within anaesthesia
Dr Jack Roberts is a registrar anaesthetist in training (ST4) at the Royal Sussex County Hospital which is in Brighton and that's part of the KSS [Kent, Surrey and Sussex] Deanery. He identifies as a gay man. Growing up as a gay person was associated with secrecy and shame, and it was not until university that he felt able to have a life that was more authentic. As a student and later a trainee in healthcare settings, he was aware of derogatory comments about the LGBT community and found that the theatre environment can be a breeding ground for ‘toxic masculinity’. However, on the whole he feels that the LGBT+ is a fantastic community with a wealth of support.
