Medical fraternity shaken by death of colleague
2012-07-15 12:21:24 | (0 Comments)
The medical fraternity is this afternoon still coming to grips with the murder of yet another colleague in Mandeville, Manchester.
Well-known radiologist, Dr Phillip Chamberlain, was found lying face-down in a pool of blood at his office at the Mandeville Radiology and Imaging Service (MRIS) last evening. He had been stabbed.
He is the second Mandeville doctor to be murdered in a month, after Dr Clinton Lewis was fatally shot at his home in June.
A shaken retired senior medical officer at the Mandeville Regional Hospital, Dr Peter Wellington, who was among many medical practitioners gathered at the scene of the crime yesterday evening, said Mandeville had lost a great man. He says Dr Chamberlain could be called upon at anytime and was among the best radiologists in the island.
Dr Wellington described the slain doctor as a pioneer for establishing the MRIS, which is Mandeville’s first independent radiology facility.
Dr Chamberlain, who was also known to many as Uncle Phil, attended the Howard University in the United States at the same time as Queens’ Counsel K.D. Knight; Attorney-At-Law and former MP for central Manchester, John Junor as well as the late Dr Percival Broderick.
He worked for several years in the United States before returning to Jamaica as a principal of Kingston Radiology. He later moved to Mandeville and established the MRIS 10 years ago.
