Congratulations to our UCLH colleagues who have been recognised in the King’s Birthday Honours 2024 list.

Nuclear medicine consultant Professor Jamshed Bomanji has been awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to the NHS and to global nuclear medicine. Intensive care consultant Professor Mervyn Singer has received the same honour for services to intensive care.

Professor Jamshed Bomanji was the clinical lead and head of clinical service at UCLH’s Institute of Nuclear Medicine until he stepped down in 2023. He now works as a full-time consultant at UCLH. Over the past 20 years he has developed the service into one of the largest and most modern nuclear medicine imaging and therapy services in the NHS and Europe. His main research interests are the diagnostic and therapeutic application of nuclear medicine techniques in oncology, nephrology/urology, cardiology and neurology for benign and malignant disease. He has contributed to many academic journals and textbooks in his field.

Professor Bomanji said: “I’m hugely grateful for this recognition and I thank all my colleagues at the Institute of Nuclear Medicine. I couldn’t have done any of this without them.”

UCLH's Professor Singer is also professor of intensive care medicine at University College London. His primary research interests are sepsis and multi-organ failure, infection, shock and haemodynamic monitoring.

He said: "It's wonderful to be recognised in the King's Birthday Honours list. I'm delighted personally and also grateful for the huge support of all the wonderful people I've worked with over the years both at UCL and UCLH."

UCLH chief executive David Probert said: “I am immensely pleased that the work of our staff has been recognised in this way. UCLH employs very many dedicated individuals who work tirelessly in rather challenging circumstances to do their best by our patients. Both Professor Bomanji and Professor Singer are exceptionally talented individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to science and healthcare. We are proud to be able to call them colleagues.”
