It is with great sadness that we report that Dr Tim Heymann (m1980) passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday 18 October 2016. Whilst at Christ’s he achieved 3 First Classes in Tripos examinations and was President of the College Medical Society. Tim was an active and generous supporter of the College and was the founding member of the Medical Alumni Association and an active member of the steering committee.
Tim had a very successful professional career starting off as a junior doctor in general internal medicine, gastroenterology and hepatology in teaching hospitals across London including St. Thomas', the Royal Brompton, the Royal London, St. George's, Imperial College Healthcare and the Chelsea and Westminster. In 1996 he was appointed as consultant physician with a special interest in gastroenterology at Kingston Hospital. In 2003 Tim set up ‘Medicine Today’ with the aim of delivering high quality, patient focused, personal GI and liver specialist services to people living or working in South West London and North West Surrey.
At the time of his death Tim was Consultant Gastro-Enterologist at Imperial College, London.
He is survived by his wife Amanda, two sons Theo and Nicholas, and a daughter Jo.
Tim’s wish was to set up a CCMAA TRAVEL fund for medical students of Christ's. You can make a donation to this fund in memory of Tim via our website donation page: (webpage to be entered here).
There will be a separate informal event at Christ’s College (Fellows’ Parlour, access through the Screens between First and Second Courts), 11 am on Sunday 29 January 2019 after the CCMAA/CCMS Meeting.
