Royal Marsden Chief Pharmacist awarded MBE in Queen’s Honours
Jatinder Harchowal has been awarded an MBE for his work during the COVID-19 pandemic and services to the pharmaceutical profession.
In addition to his clinical work, Jatinder is also a passionate believer in developing others into future leaders and coaching those from BAME backgrounds into senior leadership positions and has recently been appointed Chair of a new male BAME forum.
Jatinder said: “I am incredibly honoured, humbled and proud to be receiving this award. I’m proud of what the whole team at the Nightingale achieved together and how all of London came together during the pandemic. I’m hugely grateful for the support that Cally and The Royal Marsden team gave me during my secondment in the Nightingale and allowing me on my return to play a part in The Royal Marsden Cancer Hub to help as many patients as possible access the cancer surgery they needed. I’m also particularly proud that this award recognises the important work of pharmacists and the pharmacy teams in the NHS. I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of my colleagues at the Nightingale, The Royal Marsden and my family.”
