(Dr) Kit Byatt is a recently-retired consultant geriatrician. He was based at The County Hospital, Hereford, where he worked closely with the liaison psychiatry team and was the dementia lead for several years. He has an interest in clinical pharmacology and evidence-based medicine, resulting in a passion for deprescribing in frail older patients. His mother had a relatively rapid and unusual dementia illness; her experiences with the health care services elsewhere taught him a lot about the balance between the art and the science of medicine, and the crucial importance of finding, nurturing and working with (not against) the human within the patient.
