A doctor who worked as a physician to the Queen has been killed after colliding with a truck as he cycled through central London.
This news came as a shock to Her Majesty.
Queen Elizabeth’s doctor, Peter Fisher was 67 years old. He was riding through the High Holborn area on Wednesday morning when the collision occurred.
The Police earlier also revealed that the royal doctor had died at the scene.
Gill Gaskin, medical director at University College London Hospitals said:-
“We are all deeply traumatised and saddened to learn that Dr Peter Fisher tragically died in a road traffic accident. Dr Peter was director of research at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine. He was also physician to Her Majesty The Queen”.
Buckingham Palace said Queen Elizabeth had been informed of his death.
The Royal London Hospital described Dr Fisher as a highly regarded colleague and a dear friend. The London Evening Standard said Fisher was a world expert in homoeopathy.
He had worked as homoeopathic physician to the British monarch for approximately 15 years.
Marcus Setchell, Her Majesty’s former surgeon-gynaecologist:-
“He was much respected as a good doctor who saw homoeopathy as complementary to medical care. We are all shocked by his tragic death.
UK Police appealed for witnesses to the incident to come forward. Police also mentioned that the truck driver had stopped at the scene and was helping them with their inquiries.
An important and warning fact: Fisher is the eighth bicyclist killed in London since the month of May. In which, five of the deaths were a result of collisions with trucks.
