Yorkshire born heart specialist Dr Andrew Deaner (in the brown jacket) is rightfully receiving plaudits from all corners after he darted onto the pitch to offer his expertise in the fight to save the Bolton midfielders life.
Dr Deaner, who ran on from Tottenham’s East Stand during Saturday’s match, had stressed that Muamba must go straight to the London Chest Hospital in Bethnal Green, where he works. He accompanied the Bolton midfielder in the ambulance and is one of the team of specialists providing him with round-the-clock care.
The doctor, who is married with three teenage children, is also cardiology and clinical director of medicine at Barking, Redbridge and Havering University NHS Trust. Dr Graham Stuart, medical director of Sports Cardiology UK, said the quick work by Dr Deaner and the medical team at White Hart Lane had given Muamba the greatest possible chance of making a recovery.
