Geoff Chiu is completing an Olympic Triathlon for Saving Faces!

On the 29th August 2020, Geoff Chiu will be completing the Olympic Triathlon at Château de Chantilly in Northern France for Saving Faces. The Triathlon consists of a 1.5km swim, a 45km cycle and a 10km run.

Geoff is a Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at East Lancashire Hospitals Trust and Royal Bolton Hospital and looks after the faces and jaws of people in East Lancashire and Bolton.

Geoff has chosen to raise money for Saving Faces because of our research into enhancing patient care and recovery for patients who have had surgery to their face and mouth.
