PATIENTS and colleagues paid tribute to a Newport GP who has died after working for more than 20 years at a city practice.

Dr Milan Kumar Bose, 66, became a partner at Central Surgery in North Street in 1990, developing an interest in palliative care, end-of-life care, and diabetes.

He died of a cerebral haemorrhage on Christmas Day and a funeral service was held yesterday.

Born in India, Dr Bose completed his postgraduate training as a senior house officer in various specialties before pursuing a career in radiotherapy and oncology.

He worked as specialist registrar in radiotherapy until 1974, when he moved to the UK to gain more experience in the field, working at hospitals in Leicester and Dundee.

In 1982 he returned to India, holding a position of assistant professor in radiotherapy in Bombay, before coming back to the UK in 1987 to move into general practice.

A book of remembrance at the surgery has been signed by scores of patients, many remembering Dr Bose’s caring manner and sense of fun.

One wrote: “Such a lovely man. My thoughts go out to you all. He will be greatly and sadly missed.”

Dr Lloyd Grant, a GP partner of Dr Bose for more than 12 years, wrote that “he set high standards and was a true professional, with a great contribution to the good name of our practice in the community”.

Fellow partner Dr Eman Mahmoud said Dr Bose was “incredibly committed to his work and his family” and “changed so many lives for the better”.

A travel enthusiast and a huge fan of cricket, Dr Bose leaves his widow, Kamlesh, two sons and four grandchildren.
