FMLM Chief recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours List 2021

FMLM's Chief Executive and Founding Senior Fellow joins the growing number of FMLM members and fellows whose exemplary services have been recognised for public honours.

Mr Peter Lees has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, for services to medical leadership.

Peter said:

“I feel privileged to receive this award for medical leadership, which I see as a strong endorsement of the work of FMLM, for which I am indebted to the incredible support and dedication of the small FMLM team as well as my wife and daughter, over the past 10 years.

“This is also a validation of the value and importance of medical leadership in healthcare, and the skilful development of doctors, dentists and multidisciplinary teams to deliver the best possible care for patients in these VUCA times.”

FMLM is proud of the achievements of members and fellows and congratulate those who have been recognised with honours this year.

Professor Carrie MacEwen, Founding Senior Fellow of FMLM, lately Chair of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, has been appointed Dame Commander for services to ophthalmology and healthcare leadership during the Covid-19 response.
