Frank Tovey worked as a surgeon for two years in a mission hospital in SW China prior to the "Revolution" and later for 16 years in Mysore, S India, to enable the conversion of a Women and Children's Hospital into a full General Hospital. He then became involved in the surgical management of duodenal ulcer and also its geographical distribution and relationship to staple diets. Among his other interests was the development of reconstructive surgery in leprosy. Upon returning to the UK in 1968 he was appointed to Basingstoke to help commission the new hospital as it was built. He also continued research into dietary protective factors against duodenal ulceration as an Honorary Research Fellow at UCH. In addition to this Dr Tovey established a diabetic foot care clinic based on his previous experience with neuropathic feet in leprosy. Since retirement in 1986 he has continued with duodenal ulcer research.
