Congratulating Professor Walsh on his recent accolade, Dr Martin Shields, Medical Director at KHG said,

“Ian is both a remarkable individual and clinician. His commitment to his patients, students and colleagues is simply inspiring. It takes a whole other level of drive and vision to reach the heights he has successfully achieved. I, and everyone at Kingsbridge are so proud of his new and hard-earned position. We look forward to working alongside and supporting him in all his clinical, academic and creative endeavours for many years to come.”
