Dr Daniel Brudney

We are very sad to report the death of Dr Daniel Brudney in a car crash on Friday 13 September.

Daniel Brudney had a strong affinity for University College. He attended the University College School before becoming a medical student at the Royal Free and University College Medical School from 1998-2004.

After qualifying, Daniel completed a PRHO year at The Royal Free and Whittington Hospitals and an SHO year at UCLH before starting his Specialty training in Microbiology at The Royal Free Hospital. Daniel was appointed to a consultant post at Lister Hospital, Stevenage in 2012.

All are welcome to attend Daniel’s funeral, which will be held at 1pm on Friday 4 October at St Edward the Confessor Catholic Church, 700 Finchley Road, Golders Green, NW11 7NE.

His body will be received into the church at 6.30pm on Thursday 3 October.

There is a book of condolence in the Royal Free Hospital chapel (lower ground floor) for those who would like to write a message for Daniel’s family.
