University Laboratory Named after Pioneering Coventry G.P. David Scott

Originally Published 25 February 2002

The Medical Research Institute Appeal at the University of Warwick is to pay tribute to the life-long commitment of the late Coventry G.P Dr David Scott by naming a University laboratory in his honour. Dr Scott was deeply committed to raising the standard of general practice and greatly improved the training given to junior medical staff during his 35 years as general practitioner in Coventry. His widow, Mrs Eileen Scott, accompanied by daughter Elaine and son David, will open the laboratory bearing his name on Wednesday, 27 February 2002, at 12.00 noon in the BioMedical Research Institute, Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Warwick.

In Coventry, Dr Scott was involved with a large number of local medical and other organisations and was chairman of the General Charities of the City of Coventry when the Appeal to build the BioMedical Research Institute was launched. He and other Trustees immediately gave it their enthusiastic support. The name of this laboratory is a reminder of the many contributions that Dr Scott made to the study and practice of medicine and the generosity of the charity of which he was chairman.
