Physiotherapists Named in Queen’s Birthday Honours
Ann Moore and Bhanu Ramaswamy received the awards for their services to Physiotherapy
Ann Moore, a professor at the University of Brighton, received her CBE for having spent more than 40 years researching and improving the evidence-base for physiotherapy.
“I was initially very surprised and slightly shocked at the news of the award, but I feel extremely proud and honoured,’ she said.
‘I enjoyed my research activities and contributing to the growing physiotherapy evidence base, as well as facilitating members of the profession in their research’
Ms Ramaswamy, a private physiotherapy consultant, who is also a visiting fellow at Sheffield Hallam University was awarded with an OBE in the Queen’s honours.
She said “I’ve been reminded by sever people that OBE stands for ‘others’ bloody effort’, and they are right.
‘Many of my opportunities and achievements have been due to teamwork, so definitely with others.’
Another name on the honours list from health was Alan Borthwick, associate professor at University of Southampton’s centre for innovation and leadership.
Dr Borthwick, who received an OBE for services to health and health research, helped secure independent prescribing rights for podiatrists and physiotherapists.
