Leicester Professor makes 'top GPs' list

Pulse, the trade journal for GPs, has celebrated its 50th anniversary by naming the 50 most influential GPs (past, present and future) – including our own Professor Kamlesh Khunti.

Professor Khunti has worked as a GP in Leicester for the past twenty years. In 1992 he was appointed as a part-time Lecturer in the Department of General Practice and Primary Health Care (as was). Since 2004 he has been Senior Clinical Lecturer in our Department of Health Sciences, with the formal title Professor of Primary Care Diabetes and Vascular Medicine.

The Pulse list, which was compiled by a group of leading doctors, cites in particular Professor Khunti’s work on diabetes: he sits on the committee of the Primary Care Diabetes Society and helped to develop DESMOND, a widely used self-management programme for type 2 diabetes.
