Our congratulations go to Prof Meeran who commented: ‘I’m both proud and delighted to have received such a high honour from the Society. The Society has been very supportive in so many ways, and I’m particularly grateful for its support in achieving a reduction in the price of hydrocortisone. I am proud to have been associated with the availability of 2.5mg and 5mg tablets, enabling patients to accurately dose themselves without having to cut tablets in half. These little things that the Society does for patients is one of the reasons that I am so happy to receive this Award.’
