Bhasker Kamath came to the UK in 1974 and trained in anaesthesia in London, Nottingham, and East Midlands. He was appointed as a consultant in Hull in 1988 and worked tirelessly for the trust until his retirement in 2014. He enjoyed his work, had a passion for knowledge and teaching, and always demonstrated an excellent work ethic. Bhasker had many friends within the trust and always had a smile on his face.

On a personal note, he was a devoted family man, an avid food connoisseur, and an exceptionally seasoned traveller. In his retirement he was to be, in his own words, “a full time leisure practitioner.”

Bhasker died after a courageous struggle with cancer. He leaves his wife, Sunithi, and two sons.

Retired consultant anaesthetist Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (b 1950; q St John’s Medical School, Bangalore, India, 1974; FRCA), died from cancer on 17 August 2015.
