An anaesthetist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has been awarded a lifetime achievement medal to honour his contribution to the medical specialty.
Consultant Nick Woodall was given the Macewen Medal by the Difficult Airway Society at their annual meeting in Torquay.
The UK-based society was formed to improve the management of the airway by anaesthetists and other critical care practitioners.
Dr Woodall has been a member of the society since its inception in 1995.
Among his achievements was setting up the first 'awake intubation' course at the N&N for anaesthetists, which has since been rolled out across the country and abroad.
