Manson was late taking his place at medical school, having been hospitalised for two years with pulmonary tuberculosis. After house jobs he did a rotation in the pathology department of the Middlesex before going into general practice in Keyworth, where he worked for over 30 years, building up a singlehanded practice into a four doctor partnership. He was a keen cricketer when younger and enjoyed regular weekly bridge sessions with other general practitioner friends for most of his working life. In later years he was happy walking his dog round the nearby golf course and growing orchids.
A member of the local medical committee for two decades, he also served as a magistrate for over 20 years.
Predeceased by his wife, Margaret, in 2005, he leaves three sons, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
