The founding dean of the University of Buckingham s School of Medicine, Prof Karol Sikora, will be the second speaker at vice-chancellor Professor James Tooley's Tales from the Riverbank series - open to local residents - which he is hosting in the beautiful riverside garden of his home.

Prof Sikora is a British physician specialising in oncology, and his talk for the evening will be on Cancer Care in the Pandemic.

He has been outspoken in the national media about how damaging the pandemic has been for cancer patients, many of whom have not sought screening or treatment because they did not want to go to a hospital for fear of catching coronavirus.
