A tribute to our friend, Peter Corfield MBE

By Dr Catherine Beanland, Senior Partner, Ludlow Portcullis Surgery It is an honour and a privilege to write this tribute to Peter—a friend, health campaigner, loving father and husband and chair of the Ludlow Hospital League of Friends since 2006. In whatever role we knew him, from whatever vantage point, he stood apart as someone very special. Peter was the leader of the campaign for the new hospital and health village on the Eco Park that was approved in May 2012 only to be blocked in July 2013 on the grounds that it was not economically viable. He was awarded an MBE for his efforts in 2014.
