Robert Naylor, chief executive of University College London Hospitals foundation trust, has been awarded a knighthood in recognition of his services to healthcare.

He was among tens of healthcare professionals to be honoured in the Queen's New Year's Honours List.

Sir Robert said: 'I am deeply honoured by the award, which has come as a complete surprise. My time as chief executive of two great teaching hospitals has been an absolute privilege and I am personally indebted to all those wonderful people who have worked with me for the past two decades. The NHS, despite its critics, is one of our most cherished institutions and I am proud to be associated with it.'

Among those made Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) were HSJ columnists Luton and Dunstable foundation trust chief executive Stephen Ramsden and East Lancashire primary care trust chief executive David Peat.

Other OBEs included West London Mental Health trust chair Professor Louis Smidt; NHS Quality Improvement Scotland chief executive Dr David Steel; Portsmouth Hospitals trust chair Michael Waterland and Dr William Wilkins, clinical director of integrated medicine and consultant physician, Bro Morgannwy NHS trust.
