Obituary - Dr A June Porterfield

1942 to 2018

June Porterfield, aged 76 years, my colleague and dear friend, from whom I learnt so much, sadly died on Monday 3 September 2018.

She trained at Liverpool School of Medicine, following in her father's and grandfather’s footsteps. After working at the Radcliffe and the Brompton hospital, she became a consultant anaesthetist at the Kent and Sussex hospital in Tunbridge Wells in 1974.

She married Bill Watson, a consultant anaesthetist at Eastbourne, a very happy marriage of 30 years, which included many exotic holidays.

Thank you, June, for my travel books on Namibia. I shall truly miss you. Rest in peace.
