Dr John Hinds (died 4 July 2015, aged 35)

John Hinds, MB BCh BAO 2003, died following an accident at a motorcycle event in Skerries, Co Dublin.

A consultant at Craigavon Hospital Area Hospital, Dr Hinds was also a lecturer in trauma science. He was known affectionately as one of the "flying doctors" of Irish motorcycling, for the lifesaving support he provided during high speed bike races throughout the country, including the world-famous North West 200 in Co Antrim.

Dr Hinds had led a campaign for a regional air ambulance service to be introduced in Northern Ireland and had met Stormont health minister Simon Hamilton to discuss the issue.

He is survived by his partner Janet Acheson.
