Donald entered general practice in Grimsby in 1951. In 1966 he moved to Bradford University to set up the student health service. This grew to include all the tertiary students within the city. He retired from this post in 1982 and was appointed medical adviser to Sir James Hennessey, the then chief inspector of prisons. In 1986 he retired completely to Harrogate to develop a garden in unpromising conditions. Sadly, Donald's post retirement life was increasingly hampered by Parkinson's disease. He died several days after a volvulus operation. He leaves a wife, Stella; two sons; and three grandchildren.
