Kenneth Hollinrake was a consultant general physician and cardiologist at George Eliot Hospital, Nuneaton, and Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry.

He was born in Burnley, the son of Walter Hollinrake, a silk merchant. He was educated at Colne Grammar School, and then went on to study medicine at University College, London.

He held house posts at University College Hospital and Whipps Cross Hospital. In 1962 he was a senior house officer in general medicine at St Olaves Hospital, London. He went on to become a registrar in general medicine and chest diseases at St Charles Hospital, and then a registrar in neurology at the Royal Free and Harefield Hospitals, where he became interested in cardiology.

He trained under Britain's transplant specialist, Magdi Yacoub.

He moved to the West Midlands as a Consultant general physician and cardiologist George Eliot Hospital, Nuneaton, and Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry, 1973-97.

When he moved to the West Midlands he was always keen to bring new cardiological techniques to the hospital and he fought for improvements with a dogged persistence, which earned him the respect of colleagues and patients. Dr Hollinrake, acknowledged as the man who brought essential life-saving equipment to the old hospital site in the 70s, spent 24 years as Nuneaton's consultant physician in cardiology.

Ken took part in many forms of sport—athletics, boxing, and rugby at university, and later swimming and walking. He was interested in genealogy and enjoyed holidays and his lovely garden. Always down to earth and unpretentious, he carried on with stoicism and dignity during his last illness.
