Queen's Birthday Honours for RCVS Council member and vets
17 June 2011
A member of RCVS Council and a member of the RCVS Governance Review Group were amongst those receiving awards in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List this week.
An MBE was awarded to Mrs Judith Webb, a lay member of Council, for services to conservation, and RCVS Governance Review Group member, Professor Bill McKelvey, was awarded an OBE for services to the agricultural industry.
A second veterinary surgeon, Professor John (Joe) Brownlie, Emeritus Professor of Veterinary Pathology at the Royal Veterinary College, received a CBE for services to science.
“Both Judith Webb, as a lay member of RCVS Council, and Professor McKelvey, as a member of the RCVS Governance Review Group, make a valuable contribution to the work of the RCVS, so it is good to see each recognised in their own field,” said Peter Jinman, RCVS President.
“The awards made to Professor Brownlie and Professor McKelvey are a welcome recognition of the particular contribution that veterinary surgeons make as scientists and to industry.”
