Jeremy Davies began his academic career reading English language and literature at St Peter’s College, Oxford. This was followed by a decision to pursue medicine at St Mary’s Hospital, followed by a seven year training programme in anaesthesia. In 2002 he took up a post as consultant anaesthetist in Eastbourne, providing the lead role in obstetric anaesthetic services. During his all too short appointment he engrossed himself in the development of the obstetric anaesthesia service, achieving an exceptionally high standard by applying his commitment and enthusiasm. His dedication, good nature, and quick wit were an inspiration to all. He maintained an active interest in literature, history, and Southampton Football Club, a reflection of his rich and full education. He faced his progressive two year illness with optimism and selflessness, and used the good times to enjoy the company of family, friends, and colleagues.
He leaves his wife, two sons aged 6 and 3, his parents, and four brothers.
