“The RCP supported my medical speciality of audiovestibular medicine in a way no other medical organisation has done." 

"Getting the fellowship was such an honour — I was hugely honoured — it was just tremendous to be elected to the fellowship, particularly as I had been a surgeon for donkey's years! The ceremony was wonderful — the dinner was particularly good — and it was so special to have my wife there, because she was there when I was presented with my FRCS in 1985, so 24 years later she was here when I got my FRCP. I was immensely honoured and proud to receive it, it was fantastic!”

“Being one of three organisers of the Balance Conference here at the RCP London was a real highlight."

"Linda Luxon (far and away our top person —wonderful lady, fearsomely intelligent!) had been pushing us for an audiovestibular event for years, and so the RCP agreed we could hold a talk. The event was so over subscribed that there was even a waiting list, with the only criticism coming from delegates that the lecture theatre was too cramped and they should have had a bigger theatre!"

"The talk was such a success that the following year we were asked to repeat it in Bristol. I gave two of the lectures — that was the biggest professional buzz — the opportunity to actually talk to physicians was fantastic."
