Local Doctor recognised for outstanding contribution to care of elderly

A doctor who has spent his career caring for the elderly has been recognised by the Royal College of Physicians with an awards nomination for their annual Excellence in Patient Care Awards.

Dr Amit Arora, consultant in elderly care, has been shortlisted in the ‘Contribution to the profession’ category, which celebrates members who have demonstrated excellence in their professional life. Dr Arora is known nationally for his work on the highly-praised anti-deconditioning programme ‘Sit up, get dressed, keep moving’.

Dr Arora has worked closely with organisations such as the British Geriatric Society over the year and has also worked tirelessly to promote research into the care of older people through collaboration with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Dr Arora said: “It’s absolutely brilliant to be recognised by my peers, just to be nominated is an honour. But my work is largely credit to the organisations I work with, I would not be where I am now without them. My huge thanks go to them for their support over the years.”

Winners will be announced online during a dedicated week of celebrations in May.
