Former general practitioner Altrincham (b 1940; q Royal Free Hospital, London, 1964), died from cardiomyopathy on 2 January 2004.

Christine held house appointments at the Royal Free and in Sheffield, where she started her interest in paediatrics. She moved to Altrincham to join a practice housed in an old school attached to the church where her husband, David, was the vicar. She was forced to leave general practice because of prolonged physical debility; this was later followed by intractable depressive illness, but for some time she trained and participated in a counselling career. She leaves David, her children, and her grandchildren.
