RL Tuesday Social Morning

Our Social Morning will meet this week from 9.30-12 noon in Baker Finch Room at Arabian Ranches Golf Club. Please note the programme starts at 10.30 am.

January 8th 2019 Talk: Dr Sucharita Ghosh of Apex Medical

Handling Medical Emergencies in Dubai

Dr Ghosh is a GP with Apex Medical in Motor City. She will be talking to us about a subject we ought to know about, but are often unsure of, how to handle medical emergencies in Dubai.  What happens when you call 999? Which hospital should you go to? What should you do if someone has a stroke, a heart attack, a fall…..Essential questions we often haven’t asked! Dr Ghosh has experience in India, UK, Canada and the Middle East and will guide us through this potentially life saving topic.


Happy new year to all our members. We hope you had a joyful holiday and are ready for another exciting year in Dubai.

RL is looking forward to a busy and productive 2019 with great speakers at future Tuesday Social Morning talks starting with Dr Ghosh next week. We will also meet an ex army captain who will tell us about her experience of the armed forces, an interior designer, a mindfulness meditation coach and at least 2 beauty mornings and a fashion show in the next few weeks. Plenty to keep everyone happy!
