THE NHS HERO AWARD
Jaffery Academy
MOHAMED RIZA SADAK OF MILTON KEYNES, UK; EX-STUDENT OF JAFFERY ACADEMY, RECEIVES THE NHS HERO AWARD.

In 2012, the NHS launched the NHS Heroes award, which recognises the day-to-day work of health professionals deemed to go the extra mile for their patients. Patients and their families were asked to nominate staff whose compassion and kindness has made a difference to their lives.

The National Health Service is well known, to everyone around the world, as the largest publicly funded health service. In 2010, the Commonwealth Fund rated the NHS as the best system in terms of efficiency, effective care and cost-related problems. It was also ranked second for patient equality and safety.

A member of our community, Mohamed Riza Sadak had the pleasure of receiving this accolade on its inception last year. Mohamed Riza specialises in Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and is heavily involved in antimicrobial stewardship activities and antimicrobial resistance in his organisation. He also serves as the secretary to the antibiotic steering group in his organization and reports to the Chief Executive on antimicrobial prescribing issues. He holds a Masters in Pharmacy (2004, London) a Post-Graduate Clinical Diploma in Clinical Hospital Pharmacy (2008, Keele) and is completing his Masters in Leadership in Health and Social Care (2013, Northampton) with research based on antimicrobial stewardship activities.

Mohamed Riza states "with the current climate of austerity, increasing pressure on public services, rapidly changing medical discoveries and rising patient expectations, the need for hard work, positivity, humility and servitude has never been greater. The driving force and inspiration for those working in front-line health services can only come from the Holy Quran, which states 'if anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he had saved the lives of all mankind' (Qur'an 5:32). This coupled with the guidance of the Holy Household (AS) and strong ethos and values our fore-fathers and elders of the community have inculcated in us, can only lead one to aspire for excellence in serving humanity."

The World Federation's Assistant Secretary General for Health Dr Munir M Datoo stated "the aspiration for clinical excellence and pursuit of cutting edge practice in improving the health of humanity has to be a cornerstone for the healthcare professionals within our community. I would like to congratulate Mohamed Riza Sadak for his achievement and hope this will encourage other youths from our community to excel in their fields and be recognised for their hard work."
