Long-serving supervisor not slowing down

“I don’t know if I’ll be working for another 20 years but I don’t have any definite plans to retire,” Dr Leadston, 70, told MO after being nominated as supervisor of the year in this year’s GPET awards.

Since 1974 Dr Leadston has supervised about 130 registrars and taught another 145 students, and said he believed the constant contact with younger medical professionals has played a major part in his career longevity.
