RCP fellows and members receive New Year honours

Many fellows and members of the RCP were included in the King’s New Year honours for their wide-ranging contributions to public health, healthcare, research and much more besides.

RCP president Dr Sarah Clarke said:

Congratulations to all those who have been honoured. Their contributions are many and various and no one who reads this list could fail to be impressed and humbled by all that they have done, often over long periods of time and without ever seeking this well-deserved recognition for their achievements.

"This also gives me an opportunity to recognise and thank all of you who have not been honoured but who continue to make a significant contribution to healthcare, often in difficult circumstances, Your dedication and hard work is much appreciated by the RCP."
