Philip Charles Fulford

Former consultant orthopaedic surgeon and professor of naval surgery (b 1930; q London 1954; MCh(Orth) (gold medal), FRCS; CVO, OBE), died after a long illness on 11 April 2000. He entered the Royal Navy in 1955 and joined RN Hospital Haslar in 1967 as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon. Until 1977 he was medical adviser to the Queen on overseas tours. Most of his practice was in Haslar, and in 1969 he became professor of naval surgery. He had a deep compassion for his patients, and his competence and dexterity enticed many subordinates into his specialty. After retirment from the navy as surgeon captain he continued in practice and joined the editorial staff of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery in 1986, serving as editor from 1994 to 1998. He continued medical writing and editing and was chairman of the clinical research ethical committee at the Royal Defence Medical College. He leaves a wife, Jean.
