He was knighted in recognition of Sir Peter’s significant contribution to medical regulation, education, research and clinical practice. He said receiving the knighthood is a ‘wonderful honour’.

Sir Peter said: ‘Over the years it has been tremendous to work with some wonderfully talented people, leading change in a variety of areas, both locally and nationally. But first and foremost I am a doctor and I have had the privilege of touching and changing lives.'

GMC chief executive Niall Dickson added: 'This honour is greatly deserved. Peter has made a major contribution both as a clinician and in the fields of medical education and regulation.

'His commitment to improve the practice of medicine has been unrelenting and we are very proud that his work with us has been recognised in this way.'
