It is deeply sad to be writing a tribute piece about a man whose joie de vivre was infectious and who believed in living his life to the full.

The death of Professor Jim Dornan, retired obstetrician and gynaecologist, has shocked all those who knew him, including people whose lives he touched momentarily. The 73-year-old, who is understood to have been fighting Covid-19, made a lasting impression on everyone he met.

His contribution to Northern Irish society and the health of women who lived here was huge. In his 40 years working in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, he delivered over 6,000 babies. He was chair of Health and Life Sciences at Ulster University and former chair in Fetal Medicine at Queen’s University.
