Transplant surgeon awarded MBE
Story posted/last updated: 21 June 2017
A transplant surgeon from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB) has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for services to transplantation patients.
Mr Majid Mukadam has encouraged thousands of Asian people to sign the organ donor register during the course of his work at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the QEHB.
Mr Mukadam, a father of two, has worked at QEHB for 17 years.
Dame Julie Moore, Chief Executive of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “I am delighted to hear of Mr Mukadam’s well-deserved award and send him my congratulations.
“Despite his very busy commitment to the Trust, Mr Mukadam continues to devote his spare time to raising awareness of transplant and organ donation within the Asian community in Birmingham and beyond.
“He has addressed issues that are crucial in improving the health and well-being of people living within Birmingham’s ethnically diverse and culturally rich population. He has highlighted the fact that many Asian people, particularly Muslims, are on the waiting list for transplant and that there is a high mortality rate within the waiting list.”
Last year Mr Mukadam was awarded a Hospital Health Star award, organised by ITV1 show Good Morning Britain.
