Surgery students 'losing dexterity to stitch patients'
A professor of surgery says students have spent so much time in front of screens and so little time using their hands that they have lost the dexterity for stitching or sewing up patients...

The professor, who teaches surgery to medical students, says young people need to have a more rounded education, including creative and artistic subjects, where they learn to use their hands...

Alice Barnard, chief executive of the Edge education charity, says: "The government pays lip service by saying creative subjects are important, but its policies demonstrate otherwise..."

The report warns that entries to creative subjects have fallen by 20% since 2010, including a 57% fall in design and technology GCSE.
