Three Trust doctors named in the Times' "Britain's top 100 Doctors" list
Three of our doctors have been acknowledged as leaders in their field in Britain’s100 Top Doctors list, published by the Times early in November.
Kevin Mackway Jones, a Consultant from our Accident and Emergency Department; Nigel Harper, Consultant Anaesthetist, and Fred Wu, Professor of Medicine and Endocrinology in the School of Biomedicine, were all part of a list compiled by a team of Times researchers consulting charities, specialists and professional bodies and associations.
The Times said of Kevin’s achievements: “[Kevin is] one of the UK’s foremost emergency experts, whose information website, BestBETs, has become an invaluable tool for the staff of emergency centres throughout the UK.”
Nigel Harper runs the Anaesthetic Reaction clinic at the MRI. He has lectured and published widely on anaphylactic reactions to anaesthetics and campaigns for greater recognition of the dangers associated with these reactions.
Fred Wu is lead investigator of the European Male Ageing Study, one of the largest studies of its kind in the world.
His work looking into hypogonadism (a deficiency of the hormone testosterone) concluded earlier this year that there is evidence of a male menopause. He is currently conducting clinical trials with longer-acting testosterone-progesterone combinations as male contraceptives.
The Times Medical Correspondent and practising GP, Dr Mark Porter, said: “British doctors have been at the vanguard of medical science for more than two centuries, and our hospitals and universities are home to some of the brightest minds in the business. When it comes to medicine, the best in Britain is still the best in the world.”
