Former consultant radiologist Warrington and St Helens Hospitals (b 1920; q Liverpool 1943; MRad, FRCR, DMRD), d 28 June 2004.

Frank worked hard for the health service—he was one of the backbone. He kept up to date in technique and equipment by extensive travel to meetings and to manufacturers. He married Sheila (née Richardson), who had been in his year, and they joined the Royal Army Medical Corps together in 1944 and were both posted to India. On his return, Frank joined the second postwar radiology course in Liverpool, and Sheila trained in psychiatry. Predeceased by Sheila, he leaves three daughters.
