The Council would like to congratulate all those included in the King’s Birthday Honours list 2024 and in particular those who have been recognised for their contributions to healthcare and education. We have compiled a list of some of those recipients most relevant to our sector.

The Council is particularly delighted to see former Chair, Professor Brian Webster-Henderson, and our Northern Ireland Convenor, Professor Donna Fitzsimons, both receive OBE’s for their services to healthcare and education.

Alison Machin, Chair of the Council of Deans fo Health said:

“On behalf of the Trustee Board, I offer my warmest congratulations to Brian on this well-deserved recognition for his service to healthcare higher education. Brian led the Council through both the challenges of the pandemic and its transition to becoming an independent charity.
