Liver Disease is the one chronic disorder that's increasing in frequency with a steady rise in deaths each year.

Professor Roger Williams CBE

Professor Roger Williams, CBE

It is with immense sadness that we announce the death on 26.07.20 of Professor Roger Williams, CBE. Over a 60 year career he dominated the specialty of Hepatology with his personal brand of fierce intellectual enquiry, seemingly boundless energy and enthusiasm, and above all, a dedication to his patients. We will miss him in every way.  

Thank you Prof
