Lifetime achievement

Professor Tom Dening, former director of the Nottingham University Centre for Dementia, has won an award for lifetime achievement from the Royal College of Psychiatrists.  Accepting the Lifetime Achievement Ward in Older People’s Mental Health, Professor Dening said it was a “great honour”.  He added: “I have been a doctor for nearly 43 years, psychiatrist for 40 and old age psychiatrist for 32, but if I have achieved anything, it is due to the many wonderful people I have worked with.”
