Telegraph Obituary [PDF]

"Professor Roger Williams was a true giant in the field of liver health, and demonstrated tremendous leadership in convening the Lancet Standing Commission on Liver Disease. Liver disease affects some of the most vulnerable members of our society and Roger used his indefatigable energies and powers of persuasion to raise awareness of its impact amongst UK policy makers, bringing an issue into the spotlight which for too long has been hidden behind closed doors."

Dr Katherine Severi, Institute of Alcohol Studies

While Conservative Health exists to spread Conservative principles and policies throughout the health field and its members are Conservatives, it is also a forum for the development of views, new policies and is a source of advice to the Conservative party on all matters of health and social services. Hence this site does not purport in any sense to represent an official Party view nor the collective opinions of the Society, but is published as containing facts and opinions which merit consideration by the Conservative party, the health professions and the wider public. Contributions to the debate may be published expressing views which differ from those of the Society.
