Born in 1898 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, the eldest son of general practitioner, Dr E F Pratt. He went to Shrewsbury School and Durham University before entering St George's Hospital to complete his medical course and qualifying with the Conjoint Diploma in 1921. At St George's he won the Benjamin Brodie Prize in 1921 and the Brackenbury Prize in 1922, and held several junior surgical appointments there leading to the FRCS in 1926.

In 1933 he took the MS Durham and was appointed surgeon to Paddington Green Children's Hospital where he remained until his retirement owing to ill-health in 1961. In 1935 he joined the staff of the Willesden General Hospital.

He retired to Pewsey in Wiltshire, and died on 29 November 1965. He was survived by his wife and three children, two of whom joined the nursing profession.
