University Professor presented with regional NHS Leadership Award

Professor Arpan Guha, Head of the University’s Postgraduate School of Medicine, has won the NHS Leadership Award 2015 as Mentor/Coach of the Year in the Northwest.

The NHS North West Leadership Recognition Awards 2015 celebrate the leadership work happening across the North West and are a unique opportunity to honour and recognise those special people who have ultimately improved people’s health and the public’s experience of the NHS.

The award recognises Professor Guha’s national contributions to improving organ donation and transplantation rates and patient safety. His contribution in developing patient safety learning programmes through the University and helping to disseminate UK healthcare education expertise overseas, such as India and China were also recognised.


Professor Guha, who also works at the Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust as critical care consultant, said: “I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of my team as well as myself.

“Improving care for patients is what leadership in the health service is all about. They remain central to everything we do so we can care and support them when they most need it.”

As in previous years, all of the regional winners will go on to be finalists at the NHS National Leadership Recognition Awards in February 2016.
