Park Hill Hospital’s ENT consultant receives Silver National Award for Clinical Excellence
A medical consultant from Park Hill Hospital and Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has received a prestigious national award as a public acknowledgement of his expertise and high quality work.
Mr Shahed Quraishi, Consultant Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgeon, is the first surgeon in Doncaster and the first ENT surgeon in South Yorkshire to receive the Silver National Award for Clinical Excellence, by the Advisory Committee on Clinical Excellence Awards.
The award, which is given every year to consultants, is in recognition of Mr Quraishi’s sustained and dedicated contribution to the medical profession, over and above the standard expected of his role. He received this award after intense scrutiny by various committees made up of medical colleagues of different disciplines, health service managers, and lay members.
Mr Quraishi said: “It is a great honour and a huge personal achievement. I have had the privilege to work with excellent teams at Park Hill Hospital and in my NHS posts in Doncaster and Bassetlaw and across the UK. I am grateful to my colleagues and patients whose good wishes and support I cherish.”
Mr Quraishi’s application was jointly supported by Mike Pinkerton, Chief Executive of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals, the Chairman of the Intercollegiate Examination Board, the Chairman of the Specialty Advisory Committee and the President and Secretaries of the various National ENT Speciality Associations.
Dawn Abbott, General Manager at Park Hill Hospital said: “We are totally delighted that Mr Quraishi has achieved this outstanding award and it is very much deserved. We are very privileged to have a consultant working for us with such a high level of excellence. The Silver Award recognises his international reputation as a clinical leader and pioneer of excellence in ENT surgery and surgical training.”
Mr Quraishi is well known nationally and internationally as the founder of the ENT Masterclass®, which is Europe’s largest ENT training platform www.entmasterclass.com.
He is a leading figure in the education and training of surgeons and was in the final five for the prestigious National Silver Scalpel Award in February 2015. He was appointed to a key role at the European Board Examination for Otorhinolaryngology, an independent body that sets quality standards for ENT specialists throughout Europe in June 2015. He is also an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer in Surgical Oncology at the University of Sheffield.
