Honorary Title Holders 2016

26 May 2016 marked an extremely important date in the College’s calendar. We celebrated the achievements of new and recently-promoted Honorary Title holders in a ceremony recognising their dedication to maintaining academic clinical partnerships, which are critical to the success of our education and research. Eight Honorary Lecturers, fifty-four Honorary Senior Lecturers, thirty Honorary Readers and eighteen Honorary Chairs arrived with friends and family to a full-to-capacity Lecture Theatre 1 in the newly-opened Centre for Medicine and watched fully-gowned staff including the Head of College, the Vice-Chancellor, Pro-Vice-Chancellors and the Head of Council process to a string quartet. Professor Baker, Head of College, welcomed our Honorary Title holders who were individually bestowed with a stole, in varying colours, and a certificate before Professor Baker officially conferred the Honorary Titles.

Medical Directors and CEOs of the associated Trusts were also invited to watch, with representatives from the Leicestershire Partnership Trust, UHL, Northampton General, Kettering, Burton and Lincoln attending. We also marked two special individuals for their remarkable contributions to the College: Professor Alastair Buchan collected a Special Recognition Award on behalf of his father, Alan Buchan, for helping to establish our Medical School; meanwhile, Mr David Jones was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for thirty years’ service to the Biomedical Workshop. The importance of the occasion is underlined further by the presence of several significant guests, such as the Lord Lieutenant of Rutland and the Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire. After the formalities, all guests could relax and enjoy the atmosphere as food and drink flowed. All in all, a “fantastic event.”
