Just having heard the news that my good friend Lewis Ritchie has been achnowledged in the New Years honours list and awarded a knighthood for services to the NHS in Scotland, I wanted to make this short post to congratulate him on this achievement. I know this is the culmination of the considerable good work he has done through out his medical career although his contribution to the NHS has been formally noted.
The two of us go back a very long way and I am delighted that he has been acknowledged in this way. He has made a very considerable contribution to his profession and in particular to the NHS in Scotland but despite all this has has kept his feet firmly on the ground and continues to live in Fraserburgh ( the Broch ) where he was born and bred.
Once again congratulations to you Lewis and your nearest and dearest who will I am sure share in this proud moment.
