Professor Amritpal Singh Hungin knighted in King Charles III’s New Year Honours

   

BSG is delighted to congratulate Professor Amritpal Singh Hungin, who has been named a Knight Bachelor by King Charles III in the New Year Honours List 2024.

Prof Hungin was founding Professor of Primary Care and General Practice in 1997 and founding Dean of Medicine in 2003 at Durham University. A renowned doctor and medical researcher, he later joined Newcastle University where he remains a Professor Emeritus.

Born in Kenya, Prof Hungin was a founding member of the UK and European Societies for Primary Care Gastroenterology and is internationally recognised for his research and leadership in patient care. He has served as President of the British Medical Association and is currently a non-executive director of the Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust.

In 2008, he was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for services to research and made Deputy Lieutenant for County Durham, serving as a representative of the monarch in the County.

"Professor Hungin has been a great servant to UK gastroenterology and was one of the first waves of primary care gastroenterologists. He has been a huge friend to the BSG and many of our members. This honour is richly deserved."

 – Professor Colin Rees, British Society of Gastroenterology President Elect.
