Dr Nagpaul, who has practiced in the same Harrow practice he joined the day after qualifying in 1990, added: ‘It is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of over 40,000 GPs across the UK, who I am immensely proud and privileged to represent.

‘This honour equally belongs to the discipline of general practice - the most treasured jewel in the NHS’s crown and the bedrock of our health service providing personalised and trusted care to over 1 million patients daily.’

BMA chairman Dr Mark Porter said: ‘I am delighted for Chaand in receiving this honour. As chair of the BMA’s general practice committee, he has worked tirelessly to represent the interests of GPs and to highlight the challenges they face.’
