Who Is Prof Kailash?
Prof Kailash was born in Shimla, in Northern India, in 1948. His father worked on the Indian railways and Kailash was educated in Punjab.
He graduated in medicine from the Punjabi University Patialia and was employed as a medical officer in Kurukshetra University. Kailash was already married with two sons before coming to the UK to take up a clinical attachment at the Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool and also to study Tropical Medicine at Liverpool University.
Prof Kailash intended to return to his family once he had improved his qualifications. However, he decided to remain after his wife and children joined him in the UK and saw for themselves the high degree of care and attention his older son, who was born with Down’s Syndrome, received.
He worked for 25 years as a GP in Ashton under Lyne, receiving various accolades such as ‘Dedicated Doctor of the Year’ by Doctor magazine and ‘GP of the Year’ from the Royal College of General Practitioners. He is also a Senior Fellow of the British Medical Association and received an OBE for his services to the NHS.
Kailash retired both as a GP and as Chair of Tameside and Glossop Primary Care Trust. He took over the leadership of the Deputy Chair of the BMA.
He became the first Asian to be elected as Deputy Chair of the British Medical Association Council (BMA) representing 150,000 doctors in the UK.
