The George Marshall Medical Museum is hosting a Living Autopsy event

A LIVING autopsy event described as “not for the faint of heart” is coming to Worcester this month.

The George Marshall Medical Museum, located on the grounds of the Worcestershire Royal Hospital, is hosting a free live autopsy event with an award-winning pathologist.

dr Suzy Lishman CBE will moderate the event and explain to the audience what an autopsy entails, the impact of lifestyle choices on the body and how to identify common causes of death.

Despite the title, no corpses, blood, or body parts are used in the event, but some of the descriptions have been described as so graphic that viewers felt nauseous at times.

Event organizers have said it may not be the event for you if you’re squeamish.

The event will include a description of a conventional autopsy, illustrated using a live model and a set of autopsy instruments.

It will take place on Thursday, November 17th.

After the event there is an opportunity to talk to Dr. to speak to Lishman and ask questions.

It is aimed at over 16s, although younger teens can attend if accompanied by an adult.

This event is part of a UK tour to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Royal College of Pathologists, the membership organization that sets standards in pathology in the UK (including autopsies) and improves services to provide patients with the best care.

Tickets to the event are free but do not guarantee free parking at the Charles Hastings Education Centre.
