Professor Keith Harding honoured for his services to healthcare

Keith Harding

In recognition of his effort and passion, Her Majesty the Queen has conferred Professor Harding with a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the New Year's Honours List 2013, for his services to health. Much has been achieved over the past three decades but being awarded this high honour is recognition of true dedication and lifetime achievement in a field close to the hearts of our readership.

For a recap of Professor Harding's achievements as a professional wound care giver, read the IWJ special editorial from the first 2013 issue.
