GMC pays tribute to long serving council member

Long serving former council member, Dr Krishna Korlipara, sadly passed away last month after being diagnosed with Covid-19.

The much loved family doctor was elected to the GMC  council in November 1984 and served until December 2008.

Paying tribute, GMC Chair Dame Clare Marx said:

‘Over his 24 years of service to our council, Dr Korlipara made significant contributions to patient safety and gave a powerful voice to general practitioners across the UK.

‘He will be remembered as a kind and compassionate doctor who led by example and treated patients and colleagues with great care and respect. We are deeply saddened by his passing.’
