Antony John Wing (“Tony”) did national service with the Royal Air Force in Aden and then was posted to RAF Halton in 1964, where Tom Flynn was in charge of an artificial kidney unit, one of few in the UK at that time. He next trained with Hugh de Wardener at Charing Cross Hospital, and after time in Mulago, Uganda, he was appointed consultant nephrologist at St Thomas’ in 1969. His major research thereafter was in helping set up, and then chairing until 1983 the registry of renal failure patients of the European Dialysis and Transplant Association—at that time an innovative task, employing new computer technology . In 1994 he moved to St George’s to help set up a unit there, and retired in 1997. Tony was a gifted sportsman, and a charming and thoughtful man. He leaves his wife, Rachel; four children; and 10 grandchildren.
