Here’s a look at the top-rated British doctors in 2017, including a look back at the best and worst.1.
Doctor of pharmacy (DOB) Dr Philip Stubbins of Cambridge University has been awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine for his work on drug discovery, but his most recent research has been in the field of dementia.
In an article published in the Lancet Neurology journal in February 2018, Dr Stubbin and colleagues found a strong correlation between the rate of cognitive decline in patients who took the drug memantine and their risk of developing dementia.
“In the last decade or so we’ve been seeing more and more people with dementia come down with dementia,” Dr Stutts said.
“It’s just a huge concern that this drug could potentially increase the risk of dementia.”2.
Physician of osteopathy (PEO) The University of Oxford has been a major pioneer in clinical trials of drugs to treat osteopathy and osteoporosis.
PEO was the first drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2010.
Dr Matthew Karras, the former PEO director, said the drug was one of the “biggest discoveries” in the world of osteopathic medicine.3.
Doctor in biochemistry (DBI) Dr Alex Smith, the head of the University of Cambridge’s Institute for Molecular Medicine, has been hailed as the “father of molecular biology” and is widely regarded as one of science’s leading biochemists.
In 2014, he and his team found that a protein called MyoD had been found in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.4.
Doctor (PW) Dr Richard Walker is the director of the Royal Veterinary College in London.
He is a specialist in heart disease and is one of only a handful of cardiac surgeons to be awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Medal.
He has been the chair of the British Heart Foundation’s Heart Trust in the UK for the past seven years.5.
Dentist (DENT) Dentists have been an important part of the NHS since it was created, and it is estimated that around 4.6 million people will have a dentist’s license in the next decade.
They can prescribe medicines, prescribe painkillers and treat diseases such as Parkinson’s and diabetes.
Dr David McGovern, an associate professor of dental medicine at Queen Mary University of London, said: “The best-trained dentists have the greatest chance of keeping people in the NHS and improving the quality of life for all.”6.
Medical doctor (MD) Dr Matthew Crouch of the Wellcome Trust is the chief executive of the Alzheimer’s Society, which works with people affected by the disease to improve research and clinical care.
The charity has worked to prevent the disease from spreading, and says its members are now able to take part in treatment and research trials for the disease.7.
Pharmacist (PH) Doctors in pharmacy have played an important role in the fight against the pandemic.
Since the start of the pandemics, more than 5 million prescriptions have been written for drugs and devices to fight the spread of the virus.
The UK has seen the biggest increase in prescriptions since the pandemaker pandemic, with more than 9,000 people dying in the past three months alone.8.
Physiotherapist (PS) In 2016, Dr Praveen Srinivasan, the first Indian to win the Nobel prize in medicine for medicine, said he had witnessed the most “disturbing” rise in cases of severe pain, including arthritis, fibromyalgia and migraine, in India.
He said the rise was linked to the lack of access to specialist care in the country, which was the focus of his research.9.
Physiologist (PHE) Professor Paul Denton is a world-renowned expert on cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, and is the president of the European Society for Cardiology.
He believes that doctors in the heartland are the first line of defence against the epidemic, because they are more likely to prescribe the drugs needed to treat the disease than those in the rest of the country.10.
Physicist (PCL) Professor David Wainwright of University College London said that the lack (or lack of) access to the best treatments for diabetes and cardiovascular disease has left many people “dumbstruck”.
He said it was important to ensure that the drugs that work best are available to everyone.11.
Physiology (PHY) The UK’s National Health Service has one of Europe’s largest databases of diabetes, hypertension and heart disease statistics.
It is based on information from government health service departments and patients themselves.
This means that it is also able to assess whether people are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease or diabetes.12.
Physicist (PCE) Physicists play an important, if often overlooked, role in maintaining the NHS.
They have a special responsibility to educate patients about the risks and benefits of taking medicines.13.
