Ernest Colin-Russ

Former general practitioner Canonbury (b London 1903; q Middlesex 1927; FRCGP; OBE), died of old age on 31 January 1998. Soon after qualification he started a singlehanded practice, where he remained until retirement in 1976 as senior partner of a group practice. In the early days he was a divisional police surgeon, but gave this up as he was too busy with his practice. With the advent of the NHS he became aware of the state of general practice in different parts of London and felt that there was a need to improve standards, premises, and interest among his fellow general practitioners. He became a founder member of the (Royal) College of General Practitioners and became active in the BMA, serving the Metropolitan Counties Branch as chairman and ending up as its president. He represented the division at annual representative meetings for 17 years and was a member of the General Medical Services Committee from 1963 to 1975. Friendly, affable, and clear sighted, he was an ideal committee man and he also served on several other committees, finishing as president of the Executive Councils' Association (England). His interests were entirely medical and he was elected a fellow of the BMA in 1967 and awarded the OBE in 1970. He was predeceased by his wife, Tess, and there were no children of the marriage.
