The musicians’ hand doctor has died

Kit Wynn Parry, author of The Musician’s Hand and a rheumatologist who treated John Williams, Alfred Brendel and many others for upper limb pain, has died at the age of 90.

He was among the founders of the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine, which now has centres around the country. Amazingly, he escaped the royal honours that befell so many of his grateful patients.
