[Perspectives] Kenneth Fleming: making the global case for pathology
Some years ago, and while still occupying a senior post in the administration of medical training and research at the UK’s University of Oxford, pathologist Kenneth Fleming was at a meeting in Bangkok. He got talking to a fellow Oxford academic who was living and working in Thailand. On enquiring if he could help locally in any way, Fleming learned that the country had a pressing need for more staff and resources in pathology. This was the first time he realised that the provision of pathology services was a major but neglected problem not only in that part of Asia but also over much of the globe.
