It is a proud moment for Pakistan when Imran Khan, chairman board of governors Shaukat Khanum Trust was awarded a Fellowship degree by Royal College of Physician’s Edinburgh (RCPE) in recognition of his services in the field of health care, cancer services and especially for setting up the Shakuat Khanum Hospital.
The RCPE is a professional membership organization with a membership of over 10,000 “fellows” in 91 countries. The fellowship was given on July 27th in a special ceremony held at college. The inspiration for the hospital and research centre came after the death of his mother, Mrs Shaukat Khanum, due to cancer. The trust uses donations to help patients with cancer through the application of modern methods free of cost.
