A long term success story

Steve Smith

In 1968 baby Colin arrived at Queen Charlotte's Hospital. He was very poorly & transferred to GOSH at 18 hours for surgery. Sadly after 5 operations at aged 5 weeks Colin died. In 1969 Paul arrived, twice the size of Colin. At 7 days he started vomiting. Four doctors (all older) said I was over anxious. I took him to Sunderland Childrens Hospital (now closed) and a medical student checked him, did a test feed and diagnosed pyloric stenosis.

She was right. Paul is now 44, He trained as a nurse, moved into science BSc MA He has a family and works for the NHS as Clinical Trials Officer. He often collaborates with his brother another scientist (PhD) looking for genes responsible for dehydration & lactation.
