    We have known Dr South since he first joined the Dorset Rd medical practice, Croydon. We remember John as a caring professional and as a friend. We also have one of his paintings in our collection at home. Our sincere sympathy to John’s family.

      Thanks Jean and John, so lovely to hear about your connection with dad. His artwork is continuing to grow in popularity, we still have quite a number of his paintings. I’m very happy to think that you have something to remember his medical skill and his friendship by.
