Dr Jatinder Minhas from the University of Leicester and Leicester's Hospitals has received a prestigious award from The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) for his clinical and research achievements to improve the outcomes for patients suffering from a devastating form of stroke.

Dr Minhas has been appointed as the first of the RCP’s Quincentennial Lecturers for the region to celebrate the organisation’s 500-year anniversary which takes place this year.

The RCP is England’s oldest medical college, founded in 1518 by Henry VIII, delivering a crucial role in improving patient care.

As well as celebrating its history throughout the year, the RCP is also celebrating the future by appointing a Quincentennial Lecturer in each region to give a lecture at the regional ‘Update in Medicine’ conference, which is usually delivered by consultants from within the region and the surrounding areas.

Dr Minhas delivered his lecture, titled ‘Intracerebral Haemorrhage – is it all bad?’, on 8 February 2018 at Holywell Park, Loughborough.

Dr Minhas is currently a Dunhill Medical Trust Research Fellow based in the Cerebral Haemodynamics in Ageing and Stroke Medicine (CHiASM) group within the Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Leicester as well as a Specialist Registrar in Geriatrics (Stroke) and General Internal Medicine at Leicester's Hospitals.

Dr Minhas said: “It was most humbling to receive this award for our programme of work designed to improve outcomes for patients with intracerebral haemorrhage, a devastating form of stroke.

“This award reflects the superb clinical and research training delivered at Leicester's Hospitals and the University of Leicester respectively.

“I owe thanks to my fantastic supervisors Professor Thompson G Robinson and Professor Ronney B Panerai for providing exceptional mentorship and support.

“I would also like to thank the Dunhill Medical Trust for supporting the BREATHE-ICH study, a novel interventional study designed to improve outcomes for intracerebral haemorrhage patients.

“Lastly, I owe special thanks to the wonderful patients and their families who support our research and willingly volunteer to help improve our understanding of stroke pathologies.”
