Dr Edmund Neville
Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust | South East
Dr Edmund Neville qualified as a doctor from Guy’s Hospital in 1970. He trained around the country before becoming a consultant physician in Portsmouth in 1983. He has always believed that patients should receive the best possible treatment delivered by kind, and well informed, health care professionals. He has therefore spent his career promoting and delivering education for doctors, nurses and other colleagues.
Dr Neville led the development of the curriculum for the first foundation programme for doctors starting their careers, which majored on safe, patient centered care and high level communication skills. This has subsequently been mirrored in all other medical curricula.
The highlight of his working week is the teaching that he is still privileged to deliver.
