Details

Jeffrey Jackson was born in Bolton on 20 January 1925, studied medicine at Manchester University, graduating in 1949, and held various junior surgical posts at Hillingdon Hospital, Uxbridge.

Comparatively late in his career, in 1974, he was appointed the first consultant in accident and emergency medicine at Hillingdon Hospital. During the sixteen years he held this post major changes in the specialty occurred and his diligent attention to the training of staff and provision of adequate facilities resulted in a high quality service. Among his special interests were hand injuries and the prevention of accidents in children including, in 1970, the Hillingdon child accident prevention scheme, which provided training for children and adults and was taken up by other casualty departments.

He was an accomplished pianist and travelled widely, having a particular love for France and speaking the language fluently.

He died on 19 August 1994, aged 69.
