Medical Officer and Physician


Arthur Winton Jones, son of a marine engineer, was born in Cardiff on 13 January 1900. He went to Monkton House School, Cardiff, and did his medical training at the Westminster Hospital. He did his junior appointments at the Westminster Hospital, the National Temperance Hospital, Hertford County Hospital, the Chelsea Hospital for Women, and the National Orthopaedic Hospital.

In 1938, he was appointed assistant medical officer to the LCC Highgate Hospital (Dartmouth Park Hill) and acted as senior resident surgical officer throughout the war. In 1948, when the Highgate, Archway and St Mary's LCC Hospitals were amalgamated to form the Whittington Hospital under the National Health Service, Winton Jones became senior hospital medical officer and assistant physician to the geriatric department, in which capacity he served in the Whittington Hospital until his retirement in 1965. After his retirement, he filled many locum appointments at the hospital.

He died on 7 January, just before his seventieth birthday, from influenzal bronchopneumonia in the hospital he had served so well for so many years. Winton Jones lived a very quiet and secluded life and never married. He died a comparatively rich man. He left a bequest to the Royal College of Surgeons, the Royal College of Physicians, the Westminster Hospital, the Westminster Hospital Medical School, and to the libraries of the Westminster and Whittington Hospitals.
