This post will not mean much unless, like me, you are a dermatologist.
Dr Neil Cox, consultant dermatologist at Carlisle, and one of the greatest clinical dermatologists of this or any other era, has died at the age of 53.
Neil could have sought fame or fortune at a major teaching hospital, but he chose to serve his NHS patients in rural Cumbria with skill and devotion. He was an excellent clinical researcher and wrote extensively, but more than anything else he was a lovely guy.
He will be sorely missed
