Clare Marx has been made a dame in today’s New Year’s Honours List. Miss Marx served as the President of the Royal College of Surgeons between 2014-2017 and continues to work at Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust. In addition, Professor Tim Briggs, RCS Council member, has been awarded a CBE for services to the surgical profession.
Professor Derek Alderson, President of the Royal College of Surgeons said:
“I am delighted that Clare Marx’s achievements, during her time as President of the Royal College of Surgeons, have been recognised in the New Year’s Honours List.
“Clare helped to continue the role of the College as a progressive force in healthcare during a pressured time for the surgical workforce. We are particularly grateful for her actions to support women in surgery, encouraging clinical leadership at the frontline, and initiating the transformation of our current building into a world-class surgical centre.
"I am also very pleased to see Professor Tim Briggs has been recognised today. Tim has already made a significant impact in his career and through his important Getting it Right First Time Initiative which is now being rolled out to other surgical and medical specialties. We look forward to continuing to support this vital work during 2018.
“I congratulate Clare, Tim, and the many other healthcare leaders that have been recognised in today’s honours.”
