Christine Richards, Head of Radiotherapy Services at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (MTW), has been named in the Queen’s birthday honours 2018.

Ms Richards, who has worked for the Trust for 28 years, and as a radiographer for 46 years, has been honoured with an MBE for her services to cancer patients.

She said: ‘I am delighted and stunned to have been honoured with this award. I would like to thank all the wonderful staff that I have worked with, who have supported me over the years and enabled me to achieve this.’

This year, one in eight of the Queen’s birthday honours have been awarded for contributions to health, including more than 60 awards to NHS staff.

Miles Scott, MTW’s Chief Executive, said: ‘We are all delighted for Christine who thoroughly deserves this fantastic award for her unfailing hard work and commitment to patients. As we approach the NHS’s 70th birthday, there is no more fitting recipient of an award than Christine. She exemplifies the very best of the NHS.’
