“I have had the privilege of working in two of the institutions that for me characterise all that is best about Great Britain: the National Health Service and our universities. I am profoundly grateful to receive this award and look forward to continuing to play my small part in making our country one where access to health and prosperity are open to all regardless of their background.”

“I feel humbled and privileged at being recognised in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours for services to higher education. I have a passionate belief in the value of education and research to transform lives and communities, and have been fortunate to learn from so many capable and committed colleagues over many years who have shared this vision.”
