Tribute to Peter Rhys Evans

My project (26)

We are deeply saddened to announce that Mr Peter Rhys Evans, Founder and Chairman of Oracle Cancer Trust, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on 3rd June 2022.

Peter was not only the inspiration and driving force behind Oracle but was also an eminent and internationally recognised Consultant ENT/Head, Neck and Thyroid Surgeon.

Peter directly saved the lives and improved outcomes for thousands of Head and Neck Cancer patients worldwide. He was also a pioneer in reconstructive surgery advancing research and practice in the field of Head and Neck cancer.

We are all eternally grateful to Peter for his outstanding contribution and he will be greatly missed by so many. Peter’s energy and commitment will continue to drive the Oracle Board and team to ensure that Head and Neck cancers attract the level of recognition, resources and research nationally that their incidence and seriousness merit.

Peter’s family have requested privacy at this time and a private funeral will be held.

Oracle will be holding a memorial service for Peter later in the year in his honour.

We will also be establishing a fund in Peter’s name. If you would like to share your memories of Peter with us, please get in touch with our tribute email or call the team on 020 3875 8991.
