Published on: 06/01/10

Andrew Dillon, chief executive of the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), has been knighted in the 2010 New Year’s Honours’ List for services to health care. He was awarded a CBE in 2003.

Sir Andrew has said: “I am very proud to be given this Honour. I’ve been lucky in my career, in hospital management and particularly at NICE, in having some great jobs and in working with some of the most dedicated and hard-working people in the NHS. I couldn’t have achieved what I have done without them.”  

Sir Andrew graduated from the University of Manchester in 1975 and has held a number of senior management positions in the National Health Service, including general manager of the Royal Free Hospital and chief executive of St George's Healthcare NHS Trust, both London teaching hospitals. He joined NICE as its founding Chief Executive in 1999.

Sir Michael Rawlins, chairman of NICE, said: “Sir Andrew’s contributions to the NHS generally, and to NICE in particular, have been exceptional. His award of a knighthood is richly deserved and his colleagues in the Institute, as well as his army of admirers in the wider NHS, will bask in his reflected glory.”
