Members of the Editorial Board of the Global Clinical Engineering Journal were recognized for their expertise and public service before, however, none were recognized as an officer of the Order of the British Empire honours (OBE) for services to Clinical Engineering, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic. For bestowing this prestigious award on Professor Daniel Clark, Head of Clinical Engineering at Nottingham University Hospitals he was invited none the less but to the ceremony in Windsor Castle. Not even the 14th-century courageous archery legend Robin Hood and his band of “merry men”, who lived in Sherwood Forest and frequently clashed with the Sheriff of Nottingham, while helping the poor received such an honor. The Order of the British Empire was established by King George V in 1917 to honor those who had served in a non-combative role and expanded the Order to reward contributions to the Arts, Sciences, Charitable work, and Public Service.
We are proud to join the global clinical engineering village and the many patients in celebrating Professor Dan Clark’s Clinical Engineering work. Thank you, Dan!
