Dame Margaret Turner-Warwick (1924-2017)

The first woman president of the Royal College of Physicians and a giant of respiratory medicine, Professor Dame Margaret Turner-Warwick, has died aged 92.

During her final illness, in which she developed pneumonia in the right lung where she had once suffered tuberculosis, she was looked after at the Brompton – the hospital that she had helped put on the respiratory map.

Dame Margaret studied at Oxford and completed her clinical training at University College Hospital and took junior doctor posts there and at the Brompton Hospital.

It was at Oxford that she met her husband, Richard Turner-Warwick, one of the greats of urological surgery.
