Sir Norman Browse – former RCS President dies
12 Sep 2019
We are saddened to learn of the death of former Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) President Sir Norman Browse.
Sir Norman had a distinguished career as a vascular surgeon. He was instrumental in furthering the research work of the RCS, founding the Research Fellowship Scheme. The scheme celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018.
Sir Norman served as President of the RCS from 1992 to 1995, and was a past member of the Court of Examiners. In addition, until his death, he was also a member of the Court of Patrons. In 2000 he was the Vicary Lecturer, and during his lifetime he was awarded the Arris and Gale Lectureship, as well as the John Kinmonth Memorial Lecture. He is also a former President of the States of Alderney in the Channel Islands.
Professor Derek Alderson, President of the Royal College of Surgeons, said:
“Our thoughts are with Sir Norman’s family and friends. He made a huge contribution to the College, setting up our Research Fellowship Scheme, which has gone from strength to strength. He has played an important part in all facets of College life and will be greatly missed.”
