Medical experts honoured
A number of health experts have been recognised in the New Years honours.

Suzi Leather, chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority since 2002, said she was “delighted” after being made a Dame, while two senior doctors have been knighted. Stephen Moss, ex-nursing chief at Nottingham’s Queen’s Medical Centre also received a knighthood.

Deam Suzi has guided the HFEA at a time when technological advances have sparked controversy over fertility treatment and embryo research.

She has spent her career working in a number of health-related fields, including the Food Standards Agency and an NHS trust.

In the summer, she was appointed chair of the School Meals Review Panel tasked with improving meal standards following a television campaign by chef Jamie Oliver.

She said: "Personally I am delighted and touched to receive this honour.

"It is recognition of the importance of the work that I have been involved in."

Professor Graham Teasdale, an experienced neurosurgeon and president of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, and Professor Nicholas Wright, head of the Queen Mary School of Medicine in London, were both knighted.

Professor Wright, who is a cancer specialist and was director of clinical research at what is now Cancer Research UK for seven years during the 1990s, said: "It has really come out of the blue.

"I guess it is a reward for years of effort and hard work in medicine."

There were CBEs for Mary Naughton, chief nurse at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Royal College of Nursing president Sylvia Denton, Age Concern director general Gordon Lishman and Mental Health tzar Louis Appleby.
