Professor Bhupinder Sandhu awarded OBE in Queen’s New Year’s Honours

Professor Bhupinder Sandhu, paediatric gastroenterologist at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children has been honoured for her services to children's medicine in the Queen's New Year's Honours.

Professor Sandhu has worked at the children's hospital for nearly 25 years. She came to England from India in 1963 and had to study in her own time to gain the qualifications she needed to read medicine at university.

She has been responsible for establishing and developing the paediatric gastroenterology and nutrition unit at the hospital, dealing with complicated nutritional and gastrointestinal diseases. The unit team now includes three consultants and serves the South West population of over 5.5million people as a tertiary referral unit for gastroenterological problems in children and holds outreach clinics from Truro to Swindon.
