TWIN brothers, one a soldier the other a surgeon, have joined forces on a mission to save lives at the new NHS Nightingale London hospital.
British Army officer Lieutenant Colonel Phill Moxey MBE QCVS, Commanding Officer of 1st Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment, “The Vikings”, led a team which helped turn the Excel Centre into a 4,000 bed hospital.
And now his brother Paul, a highly respected vascular surgeon at St George’s Hospital, London, is currently on call to aid the new hospital’s dedicated medical team which received its first patients yesterday.
The Suffolk born brothers, both 42, made radically different career choices as children and this is the first time their individual skills, honed over decades in different fields, have been unified in one mission.
Lt Col Phill, older of the two brothers by 20 minutes, who has served on operations in Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, said: “Our soldiers have thrown themselves in to this effort with passion and energy to make sure our teammates across government and, most importantly, the NHS get what they need.
