Changing the conversation about health

Obituary: Professor George Lewith

Members may have heard of the very tragic and sudden death of Professor George Lewith, who was previously Vice Chair of the College of Medicine. 

George was a larger than life figure, who was one of the UK’s most prominent figure in complementary medicine as a researcher, lecturer and practitioner.  Latterly, he had been involved in initiatives as Westminster University to help young doctors develop a greater resilience in order to cope with the increasing burdens put upon them. 

George was a force to be reckoned with but also a gentle man and will be well remembered for his generosity, grace and wit.  He will be greatly missed by us all and his widow Nicola and their family will be very much in our thoughts.
