A FORMER surgeon from Sheffield has swapped his scalpel for the role of editor after founding his own magazine.

Retired orthopaedic surgeon Neville Kay, aged 78, has set up a magazine called The Journeyman, featuring stories from new writers.

The quarterly publication will be available in waiting rooms at doctors’ surgeries and hospitals across the city.

He said: “It has been my ambition for a long time to do something in the literary field and so I advertised on the internet for contributors.

“The response was overwhelming and I’ve featured the best in the first issue.”

Neville retired three years ago, but continues to accept consultation work, as well as acting as an expert witness in court cases.
