Emeritus Professor Bipin Bhakta
Colleagues will be very sorry to learn of the death, on 12 December 2014, of Emeritus Professor Bipin Bhakta, former Charterhouse Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine.
Professor Bhakta came to Leeds in 1991 as Senior Registrar in Rehabilitation Medicine, following which he was appointed HEFCE Senior Lecturer in Rehabilitation Medicine and Honorary Consultant Physician in Rehabilitation Medicine in 1997. In 2004, he became the second Charterhouse Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine, leading and developing the academic and clinical departments with considerable skill as the pre-eminent academic in Rehabilitation Medicine in the UK.
Professor Bhakta took retirement due to ill health earlier this year. As a mark of respect, the flag on the Parkinson Building will be flown at half-mast on the morning of 18 December. A memorial service is being arranged.Posted in: Obituaries
