Alison George Selborne (“Joe”) Bailey

General practitioner Bourne End 1943-86 (b Bourne End 1915; q Cambridge/St Bartholomew's 1942; FRCGP, FRCS), d 8 November 1997. His training was initially interrupted by the development of Crohn's disease (and he published an article on this in the Lancet in 1986). A distinguished oarsman, he was elected to the Hawks Club and the Leander club, and for many years coached crews from Radley, Cambridge, and Oxford. He was active in local medical organisations, having been chairman of the Buckinghamshire Local Medical Committee and president of the Windsor Medical Society. He was also prominent in the local community, particularly as a churchwarden and local school governor. He kept horses, occasionally making house calls on horseback, and was honorary medical officer to the Royal Windsor Race Course for over 20 years and also to several local hunts. He loved to be surrounded by people, whom he generously entertained, being an excellent cook and keeping a fine cellar. At Henley Royal Regatta his Rolls Royce was always parked on M31 under the oak tree. Predeceased by his wife, Christel, he leaves two sons, two daughters, and 13 grandchildren. He had great pride in the fact that he and his father (in practice in 1911-68) had served the community for so long.
