Howard Steel Lecture

Nicky Moffat CBE, Former Army Officer

Nicky Moffat was Britain’s highest ranking female Army officer, retiring as a Brigadier. In almost thirty years of service she held a range of personnel, administration and leadership roles. Joining the Army as a second lieutenant, Nicky rose quickly through the ranks of the Adjutant General's Corps to the rank of Brigadier. With women excluded from serving on the front line, Nicky served in various support, training and administration roles specialising in leadership duties. As Company Commander in the Army Training Regiment, Nicky lead a team of instructors responsible for the induction of recruits into the Army before moving into management and training for all Army Land Forces across the world. She worked at the Ministry of Defence where as well as strategy, policy and finance roles, she worked as Private Secretary to Secretary of State for Defence Geoff Hoon. She formulated and communicated the Government agenda on defence, including on operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Sierra Leone.

Throughout her career, Nicky has led diverse groups in an organisation both steeped in tradition but subject to rapid and significant changes of policy, technology and resources. She has taken leading roles in administration, planning and training including instructing officers in the art of leadership. She gives a perspective on the role of strong leadership in driving inclusive change and optimum performance. As well as leadership, Nicky also addresses training, career development, and women in leadership roles and in organisations more generally. She advised Army Board members on the retention and progression of female talent and now offers practical advice for employers who are looking to attract, develop and retain diversity of talent. After leaving the Army she has worked to bring her leadership and talent expertise to the private sector, and was also one of the instructor/assessors on BBC2’s Secret Agent Selection: WW2 which saw members of the public undergo the Special Operations Executive recruitment process of the 1940s.

Rhidian Morgan-Jones image

Rhidian Morgan-Jones

Elected Member

Rhidian trained in Cardiff at the University of Wales College of Medicine as it was then, qualifying in 1989.  He returned as a Consultant in late 2000.  His training rotation was between Oswestry and Stoke-on-Trent and included fellowships in Johannesburg and Sydney.  Since his appointment, he has specialised as a revision knee surgeon with an interest in infection, a field which remains both challenging and rewarding, although not always in equal measure.

He has a strong interest in education at all levels and continue to lecture widely, albeit within my increasingly niche sub-speciality.  He has had the pleasure of founding and running national knee/infection meetings from which he continues to learn from his peers.  A personal philosophy, when possible, has always been to organise cross-speciality meetings, which broadens one’s perspective and heightens respect for colleagues in other medical and non-medical areas.  The ability to network and coerce friends to help is perhaps a strength.

Rhidian's research interests reflect his clinical practice, combining revision knee replacement and prosthetic joint infection.  In these two areas he feels we are progressing but have so much more to learn.  Increasingly, he enjoys collaborative research with surgeons and units both within the UK and internationally.
He has three children, Myfanwy 21, Ioan 19 and Bronwen 16 who will be delighted to have their names in print.  They remain the best grounding a surgeon can have.  He is proud of them all.

Rhidian is honoured, and still surprised, to have been elected as a BOA Trustee.  He hopes to serve the membership in any way he can and reflect the pride he has in being part of the orthopaedic community.

Along the way John discovered he really liked operating and was less drawn the worried well and pharmacology. Thus started a leaning towards all things surgical. He spent a general surgical training grazing in the fields of anatomy demonstrating, general surgery, neurosurgery, accident and emergency, urology and orthopaedics. Of them all he enjoyed orthopaedics the most and thus set my course, being encouraged along the way by fine role models of excellent teachers who showed professional excellence mixed with good humour and perspectives of life that I could relate to.

Having always harboured a sense of adventure and vocation, John faltered half way through my orthopaedic higher surgical training, wondering if there was enough variety and excitement to sustain him. He thus spent a formative 8 weeks as a volunteer in Eastern-Central Africa, which kindled a sub-specialty interest in paediatrics and in medicine outside the confines of the UK. After completing fellowship training in the UK, (including time spent in USSR and North America) he was appointed a consultant in Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and the Royal United Hospital in Bath, where he spent a very happy five years. John was then drawn to an opportunity to work in Malawi for a charity, working as a Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon in one of the poorest countries in Africa. After completing 8 years, we reluctantly returned home and was fortunate to be appointed in the same capacity in Sheffield Children’s Hospital where he has been working since. My subspecialist interests include cerebral palsy, trauma and paediatric upper limb surgery although he retain enthusiasm for global paediatric orthopaedic training and the treatment of Clubfoot.
