Uccio Querci della Rovere Award

In honour of Uccio Querci della Rovere and to recognise an outstanding achievement and contribution to the breast cancer surgery, BASO announced the 'Uccio Querci della Rovere Award' in 2014.

Guidubaldo Querci della Rovere, MRCS and FRCS 1982; MD Padua (1971); FRCS Edin(1981) (1946 - 2009) was a Consultant Breast Surgeon at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London.

Known as 'Uccio', he was born in Venice and followed his father Aldo into medicine in Padua, qualifying in 1971. After a spell working in Verona, and completing his National Service, Querci della Rovere was awarded a Rotary Travelling Fellowship the Royal Marsden in 1977.  He went from there to St Margaret's Hospital, Epping, under Michael Morgan. He had to fight hard to get his Italian qualifications recognised by the General Medical Council, culminating in winning a court case that set the precedent for other European practitioners to work in the UK.  He was appointed as a Consultant Surgeon at the Royal Marsden in 1993.  He was a founder member of the Italian Medical Society of Great Britain (IMSoGB) and its President in 2000-2001.

Uccio Querci della Rovere married Anna Morris in 1971 and they had two daughters, Valentina and Francesca. His interests included Wagner, Formula One racing, photography and philosophy.

This new Award will be presented annually by BASO in recognition of the international achievements of a surgeon working in the field of breast cancer.
