Former patients, friends and FCC members got together in the Main Dining Room to celebrate the life and career of Dr Peter Miles, who has just retired. Miles, who became a doctor in 1958, practised medicine in Asia for more than 44 years – first in Vietnam from 1967; then from 1971 in Hong Kong, initially as head of internal medicine at the Nethersole Hospital and then in private practice. Board member Kevin Egan regaled the audience with stories from the early days when he acquired the “Dr Feelgood” moniker.
An incredible number of FCC members were his patients at one time or another. “When you walked into his clinic, it was like the FCC in another setting,” said Annie Van Es.
