Cameron Lockie was a GP in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire who was the driving force behind the establishment of Travel Medicine as a recognised speciality in the UK. With his friend Eric Walker he founded a Travel Medicine course in the University of Glasgow which led to a Masters degree and Diploma in the subject. He was an honorary senior clinical lecturer in Glasgow Medical School. He co-Edited the ‘Textbook of Travel Medicine and Migrant Health’ which received a ‘Highly Commended’ BMA award. In 2003 he was elected President of the British Travel Health Association.

Following five years as a medical officer in the Royal Air Force, Cameron Lockie joined a busy practice in Stratford where he energetically participated in the building of a new medical centre in the grounds of the local hospital with ‘state of the art’ facilities providing medical care for a wide area of Warwickshire. He was also a Hospital Practitioner in gynaecology at Stratford Hospital. He was awarded an MBE in 1999 for services to health care.

He was active in the Royal College of General Practitioners as an examiner for the MRCGP and as a member of the College’s Examination Board. His interest in the MRCGP took him to the Middle East where he advised on an international version of the examination on behalf of the Royal College, and was awarded an honorary Professorship in Family and Community Health in the Sultan Qaboos University in Oman.

Cameron was involved in several charities, most notably Rotary International, raising money in support of projects in aid of under-privileged children in developing countries.

He leaves his wife of 50 years Rosemary, three children (Andrew, Shona, who is also a GP, and Angus), and four grandchildren (James, Alasdair, Nicholas and Annabel).
