Gareth Hynes receives MBE in New Year Honours List

This article is more than one year old.

Gareth Hynes, who is a Specialist Registrar in Respiratory Medicine at Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) and a Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, has been awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours List for Services to Medical Education during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gareth, 36, who lives in the Jericho area of Oxford, is originally from Bristol.

In addition to his roles at OUH and the University of Oxford, Gareth is the co-chair of the Trainee Physician Committee for Health Education England's Thames Valley Deanery and co-represents the region on the national Royal College of Physicians (RCP) Trainee Committee.

He was involved in organising the regional response to the COVID-19 pandemic for junior doctors, including pandemic preparation, the education of clinicians on COVID-19 and its clinical management, regular communication and information dissemination, caring for the physical and emotional wellbeing of colleagues during the response, and of course looking after patients with COVID-19 on the Respiratory High Dependency Unit.

Gareth was also awarded one of the OUH Junior Doctor of the Year Awards 2020.

Prof Sir Jonathan Montgomery, Chair of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said:

"I would like to congratulate Gareth Hynes for being recognised for his outstanding service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Junior doctors have played a key role in the NHS response to the coronavirus pandemic and so it is fitting that Gareth has been awarded an MBE for his important contribution."
