Tributes paid to ‘approachable’ leader of surgical profession

The first ever woman President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England has died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 68.

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Dame Clare Marx CBE DL MBBS PRCS, served as President of the Royal College of Surgeons of England from July 2014 until July 2017.

She was also the first woman to be President of the British Orthopaedic Association and subsequently Chair of the General Medical Council until she stood down in July 2021, following her diagnosis.

One of her greatest achievements as president of the Royal College of Surgeons of England was overseeing the redevelopment of its building in Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

It re-opened in July 2021 after being transformed from a sprawling warren of corridors, re-built in the aftermath of a Second World War bomb, to the current, state-of-the-art training centre, fit for future generations of surgeons and dental professionals.
