Peter and Paddy Cant in front of winter trees

Gentleman and a Scholar.

MBChB (UCT). MSc Experimental surgery (Edmonton). Fellow Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

Peter Cant was an accomplished Consultant Surgeon, with an exemplary history of service on four continents. He contributed to academic medicine as well as being a mentor and valued colleague to generations of medical professionals.

Husband to Paddy Cant and dedicated father to Edward, Gillian and Jacqueline. He was an endless source of knowledge and guidance as well as a compassionate, kind man.

Honest, principled and fair, he could be counted on to fight for those who could not.

He loved to run, both as a sport and as an opportunity to relax and think. His 100th marathon came in 2014.

He will be sorely missed by his family and friends and all those who were privileged to have known him, including the many that he helped with his exceptional skills.


Queries can be directed to Peter's son, Edward. I will redirect any messages for you as appropriate.
