Dr. Anne Philip, an esteemed Gynecologist and Obstetrician, known for her exceptional qualifications and illustrious career across India, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and the UK, passed away on the 3rd of January at her residence in Westoning, Bedfordshire, at the age of 65. Her tireless contributions to the medical field and dedication to her patients have left an indelible mark on the global healthcare landscape.

A distinguished member of the Association of Trivandrum Medical College Graduates, UK, Dr. Anne Philip completed her MBBS and MD at Christian Medical College, Ludhiana, and underwent consultant training in the UK. Her pursuit of excellence and commitment to advancing medical knowledge earned her esteemed qualifications, including MRCOG, FRCOG, MFSRH, and BSCCP.

Dr. Anne fought bravely against cancer in the last few years, displaying resilience and courage in the face of adversity. Her impact on the medical community extended far beyond borders, touching the lives of patients and colleagues alike.

Survived by her loving husband, Dr. Shams Moopen, an Orthodontist, and children Abraham Thomas, a General Medical Practitioner, and Alice Thomas, a dentist, Dr. Anne Philip leaves behind a legacy of compassion, knowledge, and familial love.

Dr. Shams Moopen, expressing his profound loss, shared, “My beloved Anne has peacefully left this world. The precious memories she shared with me and the deep love I have for her will only die when I, too, become dust.” His words reflect the depth of their connection and the profound sense of loss felt by those who knew her.

On New Year’s Eve, Dr. Moopen reflected on the forthcoming year without Anne, stating, “There’s a tinge of sadness, knowing that Anne won’t be with us to welcome 2025. Life’s uncertainties surround us, but the inevitability of death is a truth destined for a select few.” He shared conflicting emotions, grappling with the fate that brought them together and will ultimately part them.

Messages of condolences continue to pour in on social media, a testament to the widespread impact of Dr. Anne Philip’s life and career. The funeral service will be held in the UK, providing an opportunity for friends, family, and colleagues to pay their respects and celebrate the remarkable legacy of a woman who dedicated her life to healing and compassion.

May her soul rest in peace, and may her memory serve as an enduring inspiration to the medical community and beyond.
