When I look back and think of my days at Guy’s I become full of nostalgia for the good times we had, admiration for our teachers who gave us a sound foundation in medicine and taught us the right approach to patients, and gratitude for our good fortune to inherit in some way the Guy’s tradition that goes back to Bright and Hodgkin. I first heard of Guy’s when as a 14 year old I spent a week camping with the boy scouts on mount Olympus in Cyprus. Cyprus was then a British colony. There, I met Dr Campion, the 80 year old Chief Scout of Cyprus. When he heard that I was planning to study medicine in the UK he said: “I trained at Guy’s and you should go there”.
