Consultant Neurologist Dr Michael Douglas has been crowned as Outstanding Neurologist in Multiple Sclerosis Treatment at the first ever 2015 QuDoS in MS Awards.
Dr Douglas received his award at a presentation held at the Beaumont Estate in Windsor prior to the MS Trust Annual Conference.
Dr Douglas received his award for his involvement in the Trust’s MS service which was set up in January 2012 and provides support for patients with all forms of MS.
Judges said that Dudley’s MS service was an ‘excellent example of a first class specialised service developed and led by Dr Douglas’, and were impressed with how proactive he was in establishing it. They commented on how the service had proved popular, effective and successful and was fully compliant with NICE guidelines, with excellent support from allied neurological and rehabilitation services.
Dr Douglas said, “Winning the QuDos award in the neurologist category is a great honour and pleasure, especially as the nomination was made by my peers and the judging committee consisted of a diverse panel of patients, MS Trust representatives, MS paramedical staff and eminent neurologists.
“The award validates our approach and efforts in providing a comprehensive high quality service close to patients to maximise our responsiveness to patient needs”
