Frederic Carpenter Skey

Frederic Carpenter Skey FRS (1 December 1798 – 15 August 1872) was an English surgeon.

Skey was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1837, and he was appointed to lecture on anatomy in the medical school of St. Bartholomew's Hospital in 1843, an office he resigned in 1865. He became full surgeon to the hospital in May 1854, but in consequence of a new rule calling on members of the staff to retire on attaining the age of 65, he relinquished the post on 18 January 1864. He was then elected consulting surgeon, and was presented with a testimonial.
