The award comes about after Martyn was nominated by one or more members of the society over the past few years. He has been awarded the MBE for “services to people with Pernicious Anaemia”.
The investiture is organised by the Central Chancery of the Orders of Knighthood at St. James’ Palace.
We offer our congratulations to Martyn who has accepted the honour on behalf of all members and volunteers of the Pernicious Anaemia Society and send our thanks to all those involved in the process including the referees and nominators.
