Friends and colleagues say a fond farewell to Consultant Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgeon, Mr Robin Lee, who retired on June 28 after serving KGH for 31 years.
Robin joined us in 1988 as an ENT Consultant Surgeon after the retirement of previous consultant Mr John Page.
During his 31 years at KGH Robin has been Clinical Director of the Head and Neck department for 18 of them.
Thousands of local people have benefitted from Robin’s experience as a skilled ENT surgeon.
In the early days of his appointment Robin - and the hospital’s only other KGH ENT consultant, Mr Mo Latif - carried out all major ENT surgery themselves including head and neck, nasal and ear surgery.
Since 2000 there has been an increase in specialisations within this field of surgery and now surgeons tend to specialise in one area.
Robin’s daughter, Sarah Meadows, is continuing his legacy and is now a Consultant Orthodontist at KGH working in the new Maxillo Facial Unit – a conversion of the former AM Lee Ward (where Robin himself worked at KGH for most of his career).
We all wish him well in his retirement.Read Mr ENT Robin Lee retires after 31 years…
