Professor Bee Wee, CBE, Official Fellow and Tutor in Clinical Medicine, has been included in Health Services Journal’s list of the 50 most influential BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) people in health.  

The list recognises the black, Asian and minority ethnic figures who it is thought will exercise the most power and/or influence in the English NHS and health policy over the next 12 months.

Professor Wee is particularly noted for her leadership in the field of end-of-life and palliative care. She works as consultant in palliative medicine, and as National Clinical Director for  NHS England and NHS Improvement. She has worked on the national framework and on an e-learning platform for end-of-life care. The citation also mentions her work at Harris Manchester, where she teaches our Graduate Entry Medicine students.  

The College is proud that the importance and influence of Professor Wee’s work is being recognised more widely.
