College of Optometrists’ Clinical Adviser makes Queen’s Birthday Honours List
The College of Optometrists is delighted to announce that our Clinical Adviser, Daniel Hardiman-McCartney FCOptom, has been awarded an MBE for services to optometry in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List.
Colin Davidson FCOptom, President of The College of Optometrists, said: “On behalf of the College, I would like to send my enormous congratulations to our College Clinical Adviser, whose services to eye health and care are being recognised through this award, and at such an important time for the nation as we mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
“It’s wonderful to see the work of our profession celebrated. Not only does the award represent outstanding personal achievement, but it also reflects growing recognition, by decision-makers and the public, of the vital contribution to public health that all optometrists and optical teams make, and their tireless work and commitment throughout the pandemic.
“We hope this inspires the whole profession as we gain ever greater recognition, and continue to bring optometry to the forefront of primary care.”
