Dr Lindsay Reid
MBChB MRCS(A&E) FCEM
Consultant in Emergency Medicine & Paediatric Emergency Medicine, NHS Lothian.
Lindsay graduated from Edinburgh Medical School in 2002 and undertook a rather tortuous path in to Emergency Medicine. Her enthusiasm for Emergency Medicine was certainly fuelled after a year in Australia, although she was uncertain if that was just all the sunshine.
She started out on a GP training programme on her return to Scotland and soon saw the light after another stint in Emergency Medicine at RIE. Becoming mixed up in MMC she finally began on an Emergency Medicine training programme in 2008 and became a Consultant in 2012 with subspecialty Paediatric Emergency Medicine.
She promotes high quality emergency care in children by teaching nursing and medical staff based on adult sites and is currently Emergency Medicine representative for children’s surgical services in the region.
When not at work she will often be seen donning a tartan outfit at the Highland Games judging the Highland Dancing.
