Mr William Frederick Walter Southwood by David O'Regan

SouthwoodMr William Frederick Walter Southwood, 1925–2002, was a Consultant General Surgeon with Royal United Hospital Bath. David O'Regan reflects on his experiences being trained by Mr Southwood.

I started my surgical career as a Senior House Officer on the General Surgical Rotation in Bath – 1987 to 1990. Today, I still regard the two and half years that I spent in Bath as the heyday of my surgical career. All the consultants have had an impact on my learning and teaching. I would like to reflect on one of my first trainers – Mr Southwood.
