To be given an honour, someone has to nominate the recipient. That someone has to be credible to the awarding committee and so only those with some recognition by a known body (a local authority, hospital trust, BDA etc) can hope to be so rewarded. Don't worry Tony - a couple of years in BDA high office and your CBE will be in the post but it won't be because of your excellent patient care!

Queens Honours - where are the ordinary GDPs???
All worthy people being honoured I'm sure, but are they really saying centrally, that NO 'ordinary' hard working GDP on the front lines who isn't highly academic or worked for the Civil Service, isn't worthy of such a prominent award for the benefit to society they bring practically every day ?!?

Yours inclusively,
