British doctor returns from Syria

British doctor Rachael Craven from Bristol has just returned from Northern Syria after working secretly as a medic in the country for two weeks.

She worked in a house turned into a field hospital treating civilians and fighters mainly for gunshot and shrapnel wounds after heavy shelling.

The British anaesthetist normally works at the Bristol Royal Infirmary, but she used four of her five weeks annual leave in order to work in one of the most dangerous countries on the planet.
