Ganesh Suntharalingam has been a consultant intensivist at Northwick Park hospital for 20 years, and is currently President of the Intensive Care Society (UK). He ran the ICS State of the Art conference for 3 years from 2015-17. He has an amateur sideline in healthcare architecture and design and is a regular panel judge at the European Healthcare Design Awards.
For a period of a few days in 2006 he repeatedly appeared on international news bulletins alongside Saddam Hussein and Tony Blair (although for unrelated reasons). He is the only one of these to still be in post.
