Died: (reported) April 8, 2020 Ipswich, UK
Profession: Physician General Practice
Dr Fayed Ayache, 76, was a dedicated GP who worked for the NHS in Suffolk for more than 40 years and “felt it was his duty to help” people, his daughter said.
The father-of-two, who also ran an ear, nose and throat clinic at Ipswich Hospital, retired around two years ago but was soon back working “a couple of days a week” as a GP with North Clacton Medical Group.
Layla Ayache, 35, said: “My dad was very, very commonly phoned and people would say ‘my daughter’s ill’ or ‘my son’s ill’ or ‘my husband’s ill.
“He would often pop round and just check people were OK. “He was a rural village GP at heart and that’s the sort of thing that he would do.
“I wholeheartedly believe that if someone had called him with a concern he would have gone over and checked they were OK, because that’s what he wanted to do for everybody.
