Dr Ruth McKee awarded the John Lennard-Jones Medal

Congratulations go to Dr Ruth McKee, colorectal surgeon at GRI, who has been awarded the prestigious John Lennard-Jones Medal in recognition of her significant and consistent contribution to the British Association of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN).

Ruth identified that in order for delivery of good care to be sustainable and effective there had to be buy in from the multidisciplinary team along with the patient themselves.

Ruth chairs the Nutrition Support Team at the GRI providing an inpatient service to those with complex nutrition needs and an outreach service to 60 patients on Home Parenteral Nutrition.

The John Lennard Jones Medal is the highest accolade that the Association can bestow. It is awarded only to individuals who have given significant and consistent contribution to BAPEN over many years.
