Surgeon scoops top TV award
Story posted/last updated: 12 May 2016
A transplant surgeon from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) who has encouraged thousands of Asian people to sign the organ donor register has won a top TV award for his work.
Mr Majid Mukadam was told he had won the ITV1 Good Morning Britain Hospital Health Star Award by presenter Dr Hilary Jones when he made a surprise visit to QEHB in April 2016.
The father-of-two was presented with his prize when he attended a glittering awards ceremony in London a few days later.
Mr Mukadam, 53, who has worked at QEHB for 16 years, said: "I am delighted to receive the Health Star Award and grateful that it gives me, and the excellent team here at the Trust, another opportunity to convey the important messages about organ and bone marrow transplant and donation.
“The award gives us another impetus in our work to achieve our objectives of increasing awareness of organ donation to save and prolong even more lives.”
Mr Mukadam was nominated for the award by his wife Shaista, who was keen to have his work recognised.
The awards were set up to reward those who have gone the extra mile to help someone's health or save a life and are voted for by Good Morning Britain’s viewers.
Celebrities including Leslie Ash and Michelle Heaton joined the show’s team and award nominees at a packed ceremony at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
Presenter Piers Morgan, Strictly professional Kevin Clifton and his wife Karen, Gloria Hunniford, Lord Winston, Debbie McGee and Dr Dawn Harper were among those attending.
