About the President
President: Dr Giles Maskell
Giles Maskell studied medicine at Merton College, Oxford and at St Thomas’ Hospital in London, qualifying as a doctor in 1980. After five years working in general medicine and gastroenterology he undertook radiology training first at Guy’s Hospital in London and later at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge and in Auckland, New Zealand.
He was appointed consultant at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro in 1991 where he continues to work as a radiologist with interests in gastro-intestinal and oncological radiology. He has served two terms as the trust’s Director of Cancer Services.
Away from radiology, Giles is married to a GP and has three teenage children. He is a keen skier and recreational cyclist. Getting from Truro to London each week involves a long train journey, which gives him plenty of reading time. Once in London, his preferred method of transport is the 'Boris bike', an experience that he finds alternately life-affirming and life-threatening or frequently both in the course of the same short journey.
