Two NHS Forth Valley Dietitians have been honoured by the British Dietetic Association at their 2016 annual awards ceremony in Birmingham. Nicola Henderson and the late Pamela McIntosh were both awarded the BDA Ibex award for professional achievement.
Nicola Henderson received the accolade in recognition of the work she has undertaken in her own time over the last 8 years as a member of the BDA Specialist Group for the nutrition of older people. Nicola has chaired this group for the last four years and previously won the BDA Specialist Group of the Year 2014 award.
Pamela’s posthumous Ibex was in recognition of her work with the BDA Mental Health Specialist Group, her contribution to obesity guidelines and being at the forefront of dietetics for Prader Willi learning disabilities.
Nicola attended the award ceremony dinner in Birmingham together with Janie Faulkner, Learning Disabilities Dietitian, who collected Pamela’s award.
