Vivek Sivaraman – In Memoriam – 29th November



Some of you will remember Vivek Sivaraman who died suddenly in March 2015 leaving his wife Lucy and four children, as well as a large hole in the worlds of those who knew and worked with him. At Lucy’s request and in conjunction with the old Heart Hospital anaesthetic department, we have arranged for a bench to be placed in the quadrangle at St Bartholomew’s Hospital which is where many of us feel Vivek would have worked as a consultant.
Lucy would love anyone who knew Viv to come along to the quadrangle at Barts on 29th November at 1800 where we will say a few words of dedication in his memory, followed by some drinks in one of the local pubs.
No need to let us know, just turn up!
Roger and Lucy.
