The GP developed a project on the city’s St Matthew’s estate in 1996 to create a model of urban regeneration in which statutory and voluntary agencies could work with the local community to tackle the effects of poverty.
Dr Lennox said: ‘I can only do the work I do because of the brilliant team and fantastic family I have.’
Dr Chris Steele, a GP from Manchester and the resident GP on ITV’s This Morning, was one of five GPs made MBEs.
The other recipients were Dr Mary Hickey, from Westminster, central London, Dr John Macdonald, from Newton Stewart, Wigtown, South West Scotland, Dr Ashwin Shah, from Newham, East London, and Dr Peter Tate, from Corfe Castle, Dorset.
