The living witness programme aims to record the recollections and experiences of pioneering clinicians who have helped to shape the practice of modern urology.
These clinicians have been interviewed by Dominic Hodgson as part of a journal series called "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants". Their recollections have been recorded here for the education and enjoyment of contemporary (and future) urologists.
So far, three other key urological figures from the recent past have been interviewed - the late Mr John Wickham, the late Sir David Innes Williams and Mr Richard Turner Warwick.
John Blandy was born in India. He trained in Oxford, at The London Hospital and at St Peter’s Hospital London. He was one of the most influential forces in the popularisation of TURP in the UK.
