A. Robert W. Forrest

Robert Forrest received his BSc in Pharmacology in 1970 and his UK medical qualification (MB, ChB) in 1973, both from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He started his medical career as a house officer in the Poisons Unit at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary and went on to a varied postgraduate medical education in general medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, neurology and clinical chemistry, the later with a special interest in clinical toxicology and TDM, whilst working in Cambridge, Reading and Glasgow. Whilst in Glasgow he acquired a Masters in Clinical Biochemistry. One benefit of his training in clinical nutrition was that he applied a technique used to estimate body water from anthropometric measurements to develop a method for the estimation of Widmark’s factor.

He was appointed as a consultant in Clinical Chemistry & Toxicology to the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield in 1981. Whilst there he developed a clinical and forensic toxicology service widely used by investigators from various agencies in England & Wales. Whilst in Sheffield he held the post Professor of Forensic Toxicology at the University of Sheffield from 1998 to 2005. In 2005 the University of Sheffield decided that its medical, law, dental and nursing students had no need of teaching in matters forensic and closed its Forensic Pathology department. Family ties kept him in Sheffield and he returned to full time practice in the National Health Service, retiring when his pension maximized in 2007.

Whilst working for the NHS, one of Margaret Thatcher’s initiatives in heath care reform resulted in him being sent to Cardiff Law School to do a masters degree in law.

He has been an assistant deputy coroner for 20 years and continues to practice as such, as well as being as an independent consultant in forensic toxicology.

He has been involved in many high profile cases, possible the most noteworthy being Operation Paget, the investigation of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.

He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Pathologists, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (Jurisprudence Section) and the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine. He is a member of TIAFT & SOFT. He is a fellow and Past President of the Forensic Science Society.
