The Medical Women's Federation feels the deepest sadness at the announcement of the death of Dame Margaret Turner-Warwick. Dame Margaret was a real pioneer in medicine and led the profession in clinical, academic and medico-political arenas with superb skills. She was wonderful physician and pathophysiologist at the Brompton hospital, a great academic, and the first female president of the Royal College of Physicians where she led the college through difficult times.

Dame Margaret was a person of prodigious intellect and yet, was always very warm and approachable and made time to give advice and take a personal interest in all around her. Despite her wonderful achievements in medicine, she also had a deep interest in music, played the violin, was a keen gardener, and painted watercolours ..... a true renaissance woman! She heads three generations of medical women as her daughter, Lynne Turner-Stokes and grand daughter are all doctors. Our deepest sympathy go to her family.

Dame Margaret Turner-Warwick died on the 21st of August at the Brompton hospital following an operation. We will all miss her!
