Aged 83 | Born 1934
About the Speaker
"I was born in 1934 in Cheam, Surrey. My father was an engineer. He was brought up in a strict religious household, but I wasn’t brought up with religion. I was privately educated and later did my medical training at The Royal Free, although in my day it was called The London School of Medicine for Women. I worked in several hospitals and trained as an ophthalmologist. I continued to work once I was married and had children. My husband was a lawyer and we lived abroad for a short while. I would describe myself as middle class. "
