Tributes paid to Dr Jenny Vaughan

Tributes have been paid to Doctors’ Association UK (DAUK) founding member and past chair Dr Jenny Vaughan – and we’ve created a Wall of Support for people to add their tributes.

DAUK’s Dr David Nicholl, her friend and colleague, said: “I first met Jenny when we were both doing PhDs on the genetics of Parkinson’s disease in the 1990s.

“Bizarrely an intellectual passion & curiosity for trying to figure out ‘why something wasn’t right’ in a family tree in our respective PhDs turned out to be directly relevant in our work on injustice.

“She had an innate sense of curiosity and a desire to stand up for those without a voice, and speak with passion and conviction.

“I will miss her wisdom and counsel.

“She was a true friend. When I had a difficult situation to deal with, Jenny was always the person I would turn to.

“Jenny had the biggest heart of anyone I know.

“Our thoughts are with Matt and her sons.”

Ms Helen Fernandes, DAUK co-chair, said: “When I needed help and support during a difficult time Jenny ‘had my back’, sharing with me a resolve and a drive to keep going.

“’When in hell keep walking’ was another motto of hers I often relied on.

“It is an absolute privilege to carry on her work as co-chair of DAUK.

“She has touched so many lives in such meaningful and positive ways.

“Sleep well Jenny.”

Dr Jenny Vaughn will be sorely missed. I was lucky enough to listen to her speak on campaigning and equality on two occasions - her compassion, composure, clarity and intellect were evident. Her impact on those around her and further afield is profound. Do many sorrows that she is no longer here and a hope that her family can find some comfort in all the fond rememberings.

I had the pleasure of crossing paths and I echo all the sentiments here by others. She was a force, and a unique one we only see now and then that is such a key driver of the necessary change needed in the society. She has done so much to inspire others, the entire medical profession and her effects will continue to ripple on. My thoughts go out to her family, especially her husband and children. I know she is in a much better place, but humanity has lost another amazing fighter.

I feel so sad hearing about Jenny's passing. Jenny was a force of nature, selfless, indefatigable, a voice for the voiceless and a true warrior against injustice. She stood with and supported my family in our darkest hour. I regret never meeting her. My condolences to her family. Take solace in the fact that she touched so many lives positively and her legacy lives on.

Jenny was a warrior against injustice and had a huge heart for all she did. I recall her organising MRCP teaching weekends as she started her family. She did not see hurdles in the same way that others did, but opportunities. The world would be a great deal fairer with more Jennys. She leaves a lasting legacy and one we will look to and remember with immense gratitude.

What struck me most about Jenny, who I got to know during the appeal hearing of Dr. Bawa-Garba, was her intolerance to unfairness experienced by practicing doctors. Jenny was both a physician-advocate and patient-advocate. She believed that patients fared best when physicians charged with healing them are not victims of an unjust system. She drew attention to the unusually high convictions of doctors for manslaughter. She will be missed as a person, a professional, and an advocate. My condolences and best wishes to her family.

Wow, what a phenomenal human being. I only overlapped with her for six months, at Ealing Hospital while I was a first year Acute Medicine Registrar, but that was enough to know. From coming to review a couple of patients we’d referred to her, Jenny could see that I wasn’t happy in my job, and so despite being a Consultant in a different specialty (such that I was therefore not her problem at all), she arranged for me to sit with her in her weekly Neurology clinics for the remainder of my placement. This served as some extra General Medicine experience for me at the time, but it allowed me the stimulation of seeing some totally different types of clinical cases, which I really needed at the time. As if that wasn’t enough, Jenny also then took an interest in my application for Specialty Training in Infectious Diseases, and gave me some tips on interview preparation over the phone.

I had the privilege to get to know and work with Jenny when campaigning for Dr Sellu. She was a true force of nature. She was kind, empathetic and indefatigable in the pursuit of justice. She was a true warrior and her family must be very proud. I’ll never forget sending a highly respected legal journalist to interview her at home, who got the fright of her life when out crawled the huge salamander from its slumbers as Jenny had popped to make the tea… it certainly made for some great copy. Always expected the unexpected with Jenny. She will be hugely missed. MR

I had the privilege of representing David Sellu at his GMC hearing and it is in that context that I first met Jenny properly. She came to almost every consultation and asked important questions as well as challenged my thinking on how to deal with issues in the case. No barrister welcomes that level of third party involvement but I came to admire Jenny more than I can describe. The interest of the client was her interest and she fought at every turn on their behalf. I welcomed her thoughts and guidance. So much so that we were in touch after the case and on many occasions thereafter. We discussed a variety of issues relating to doctors, including me giving a talk to DAUK, which I did. There are those in life who calculate their contribution. Jenny was the opposite. She gave of her time and almost irrepressible effort until she could give no more. Her life was cut short with immense sadness for her family but her worth was also immense and filled many lifetimes and supported many lives. She will be sadly missed but we should also celebrate her contribution to the enormity of the lives she changed. May her memory be a blessing to her family and friends.

Phenomenal is a word that only Begins to describe Jenny! Passionate, Kind, Resilient, Selfless, Focused and Driven! I met her at the height of our fight for small section of International medical graduate doctors being exploited by a particular recruitment agency into the private sector. The moment she saw the extent of the oppression, she rolled her sleeves up & dug her heels in. Jenny attended meetings with doctors even while on her hospital bed! She made every attempt to right the wrongs & this was one area she probably put in so much work, but was least publicised. I remember finally meeting her and realising what a legend she was! May Matt and her sons find comfort in the faith that kept her going; for she was also a woman of great faith🙏🏼 I love and miss you Jenny. Thank you for the friend and comrade that you were! I find comfort in knowing that you rest in peace and love forever....

Jenny’s reputation of greatness preceded her. When I returned to training from maternity leave and mentioned she was my educational and clinical supervisor , the universal response was, “whoaaaa, she’s a legend!” And she made me feel seen, heard, understood and supported. She was always the first to contribute to the collection for our little celebrations, and had a knack of knowing exactly when we needed a little boost during the intensity of working through second wave of covid. She had our back, fought our corner and even when she had a relapse, she was still asking how she could help me further my training. She was immensely proud of her sons and inspired and encouraged me professionally and in my parenthood journey. So much to learn from her in every way. Gone too soon, she will be missed and the medical community has lost a champion .

She helped me at my lowest point and was the benchmark for work at DAUK. We sadly never got a chance to meet face to face. We almost did in Oct/Nov last year but unfortunately she deteriorated just before the weekend I was visiting London.
