Right Arrow Consultant retires after 30 years
10 March 2006 at 10:18
MidwivesMr Edwards was born in Southport in 1940.  He trained at Queen’s College, St. Andrews, Scotland between 1959 and 1965.  He started his career as a House Officer at St Helen’s Hospital, and gradually made his way up the ladder, through posts at Walton Hospital, the Women’s in Liverpool and Liverpool Maternity Hospital.  When he became a registrar he moved to St Mary’s Hospital Manchester and Park Hospital Manchester.   He eventually became a locum Consultant at Broadgreen Hospital.

Mr Edwards joined Ormskirk Hospital in 1976 as a Consultant, when his reference at the time described him as being “deserving of a permanent Consultant position”. Since then he has seen many changes in the organisation of the Health Service in general and in advancements in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology. 

Janette Brookes, Director of Specialist and Emergency Services commented, “Roy will be greatly missed by all his colleagues.  He was a very skilled surgeon, a supportive colleague and wise owl.  We all wish him well in his retirement and know he will enjoy the time to indulge in his love of fast cars.  Although his wife Lesley might have more plans for him in the garden!”
