Roger Verrier Jones is a retired doctor from Cardiff, where he worked from 1969 to 1999 as a consultant paediatrician. On retirement he became a trustee of the Noah’s Ark Appeal. His medical training took place at Cambridge University, University College Hospital, London and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. When he was first appointed as a paediatrician he found himself looking after sick children in 6 different hospitals in Cardiff, and became convinced that a single children’s unit would ensure better care for the children and their parents. Years of frustration and delay followed but eventually, with the help of the Noah’s Ark Appeal, the Children’s Hospital for Wales built. .
