Sommerlad Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery Set

Brian Sommerlad and CLEFT
Brian Sommerlad is an honorary consultant plastic surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, London, and at the St Andrew’s Centre for Plastic Surgery, Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford. He was the first Clinical Director of the North Thames Cleft Lip and Palate Service.

Although involved in many aspects of plastic surgery, his main activity now is centred around surgery for children and adults with cleft of lip and palate and associated conditions.
Registered with the Charity Commission in 2007, CLEFT is a charity which aims to research the unanswered problems in improving care for children born with cleft lip and palate throughout the world.

The charity aims to push the boundaries of conventional treatment by funding research into improving operating techniques and by looking at the underlying causes for cleft deformities.

CLEFT and Brian Sommerlad work with local surgeons in countries where cleft lip and palate services are less well-developed and S Murray & Co is proud that this set will help towards that research, training and development.

Further details of CLEFT can be found at, with links on how to get involved, donate, or find updates on the work undertaken by the charity, including the current major project to create a dedicated Cleft Centre in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
