Outstanding surgeons recognised
At his final AGM as President of BAHNO, Professor Hisham Mehanna took the opportunity to honour four surgeons who have contributed greatly to BAHNO and to the specialty.
Mr Michael Fardy and Mr Nicholas Roland were given Honorary Life Membership of the Association for their services to BAHNO and its membership over many years. Both have served on Council in varying posts culminating in Mike becoming the President and Nick being the driving force of an Honorary Secretary.
The President’s Achievement Award was given to Professor Kevin Harrington and to Mr John C Watkinson. Kevin is one of the most noted leaders of head and neck research internationally, having made several notable contributions that have led to changes in management of head and neck cancer. John has made a remarkable contribution to thyroid and parathyroid surgery, both from a clinical practice perspective as well as from an educational perspective over many generations.
