Dr Nick Beeching
Nick Beeching graduated in medicine from Oxford and became another protégé of Dion Bell’s, working with him at Sefton General Hospital in 1978. He returned to the School in 1987 as Senior Lecturer in Infectious Diseases, subsequently becoming leader of the School’s Clinical Unit at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. He developed wide experience of FEPOW health and became a close collaborator with Geoff Gill on FEPOW research after Dion Bell’s retirement. Together they published studies on Strongyloides infection and on the total FEPOW population (over 2,000) seen at the School between 1968 and 2000.
