    I am so sorry to hear that Brice has died; I was, and still am, an enormous fan. I was his first Senior Registrar at St Clements (he had somehow prised me away from Desmond Pond - another hero). Despite his influence I took a job as a Consultant Adult Psychiatrist the other side of London, but eventually saw the light becoming Consultant in Mental Health of the Elderly in Hereford. Thereafter I bumped into him at Old Age Faculty meetings - he and Dave Jolly formed a wonderful double act. He was a terrific man, from whom I learned such a lot. My heartfelt condolences go to his family. With my very fondest regards. Nick.

    Thanks so much for posting this Nick. It’s fascinating to hear all about my Dad’s work. There are a lot of people sending me lovely messages about him. We hope to stream the funeral and have a memorial for him in the summer and of course you’d be welcome. Best Wishes Roz and Judy

    I was Brice's registrar at St Clements hospital in Bow London in 1982/1983. I have kept a wonderful memory of him as a psychiatrist and as a man. He was warm, kind, with a great sense of humour with always a twinkle in his eyes. From a professional point of view, he was a brilliant clinician (not just working in psychogeriatrics as we must not forget his early pioneering work on postnatal disorders. My condolences to the family. Michel Cozzolino
