Dr Chand was awarded the OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours in June and was recently presented with his medal for the award. He said receiving the OBE was a ‘source of immense pride’.

He said: ‘The NHS is one this country’s finest achievements and it is greatly humbling to be recognised for my small part in it.

‘I hope to live up to this honour by continuing in my ongoing commitment to the NHS and the fight against health inequalities. I would like to thank my colleagues in BMA council, GPC and Westpennine LMC, my family and my local community for all their support over the years.’

Dr Chand worked as a GP in Ashton-Under-Lyne in Lancashire for 25 years before becoming chairman of NHS Tameside and Glossop last year.
