David Fish Knighted in Queen's Birthday Honours 2014
Professor David Fish, Managing Director of UCLPartners Academic Health Science Partnership, has been knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for 2014.
Professor David Fish became Managing Director of UCLPartners when it was established in June 2009, following a distinguished career in clinical leadership in the NHS and as a consultant in clinical neurophysiology and neurology. As Managing Director of UCLPartners, David has led the development of the academic health science partnership, instilling a culture of collaboration and support across universities, the NHS and industry for the benefit of a population of six million people.
Speaking about the honour, Professor Fish said: “I am delighted and feel hugely privileged to be recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. It is testament to the unremitting effort and inspiration of all the staff in UCLPartners, the commitment across the partnership and the support of local communities that is helping to transform the lives of so many people.”
Professor Fish’s relentless commitment to tackling the unacceptable delays that exist in introducing proven healthcare innovation into standard medical practice drives the vision of making a positive impact on the health of the patients and populations. UCLPartners’ collaborative approach is supporting its partners to achieve demonstrable and lasting benefits: preventing disease, diagnosing disease earlier, educating the workforce, giving people better access to world-class treatments and ultimately saving lives. Our approach to support improvement across entire healthcare systems and along whole patient pathways has gained national and international recognition for UCLPartners.
