THE only medical physicist or clinical engineer to be honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List is an IPEM Fellow.
Professor Tony Fisher has been awarded an MBE for his services to medical physics and clinical engineering.
He is a Consultant Clinical Scientist at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and the University of Liverpool.
Professor Fisher said: ‘I am very honoured with this terrific award. I think it recognises how clinical engineers and medical physicists can contribute at the highest level to the care of patients in the NHS.’
He originally qualified in medicine but went on to train in clinical engineering and then medical physics.
In recent years Professor Fisher’s main work has centred on the postgraduate education and training of NHS healthcare scientists and the implementation of the Modernising Scientific Careers programme.
Professor Fisher is also the Non-executive Director for the Physical Sciences at the Academy for Healthcare Science.
