Reflections during Covid-19 lockdown: A poetry diary
Professor Rajan Madhok was born in Delhi, India in 1954. He moved to the UK to complete his medical training and become a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (Glasgow), though intending to return to India after qualifying. However, he discovered his passion for the NHS and stayed in the UK working first as an Orthopaedic Surgeon and later switching into public health. His role saw him working across the UK – starting his training first in Shetland – partly because he didn’t know where it was! Over the years he has held increasingly senior leadership positions in the NHS and when he retired he was Medical Director of NHS Manchester.
