A LEADING Consultant at Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been honoured for his work with trainees by winning a prestigious national award.

Dr Bhaskar Mukherjee, Consultant Stroke Physician at Queen’s Hospital in Burton, has been awarded the Professor Elizabeth Hughes Award by the Royal College of General Practitioners for his mentoring of the next generation of GPs.

Dr Mukherjee was nominated by a former pupil, Dr Ali Ismail, who described working alongside him as a ‘privilege’. The award recognises the contributions made by senior consultants across the NHS and was presented by Professor Hughes.

Dr Mukherjee said: “It is humbling to be awarded this for the contribution to helping train the next generation of GPs. It’s incredibly important to pass on knowledge and experience to help to improve patient care and provide the public with the best possible service.

Dr Magnus Harrison, Trust Medical Director, added: “Dr Mukherjee’s hard work, dedication and professionalism in helping to mentor young doctors is fantastic. I’m delighted that he has been honoured in this way and that his commitment has been recognised. We have a duty to assist trainee medics to enhance their skills as we strive to continually improve the care we provide to patients.”
