  • Thanks, indeed, for posting this.

    It really should be published in appropriate journals, maybe start with the GMC, followed by the BTA, BTF, RCoP.

  • Excellent

  • your epitaph says everything .. from HIS patients .... only desolate that I didn't actually meet with him .....but the replies on this site alone prove that he lived by what he stated and proved that SOME doctors know the meaning of the word 'CARE' in the 'CARING PROFFESSION ' .....I hope his family realise what a true person he was .....alan xx

  • Dr Skinner's family have always been so appreciative of all the support he had from his very grateful patients.

  • so glad to hear this ....it may give them some comfort in their thoughts at this time .....alan xx
