One of our consultants, Dr Zul Mirza, has won a sought after Teaching Excellence for NHS Teachers (2009/10) Award by Imperial College London. He was presented with his award in a formal ceremony last November for the first-rate teaching he has offered to Imperial College London medical students during this academic year.
Imperial College began these awards in 2003 to recognise the efforts of over 800 NHS staff in West London, who deliver the undergraduate course to medical students (some 70-80% of their curriculum). These teachers are valued immensely by Imperial, who recognise that teaching is a shared activity, delivered by the medical and nursing staff, pharmacists, therapists and many others employed in both hospitals and general practice.
Zul has been teaching for a number of years at West Mid and most recently has been involved in teaching third year medical students, as well as final year medical students who speak highly of his 'power tutorials!'
Zul was very happy with his award: "Prizes such as these spur you on to do even better.

Time spent in accident and emergency after accidents and binges represents a "teachable moment" when drinkers can be persuaded to understand the damage they are doing to their health, said Dr Zul Mirza, president of the Royal Society of Medicine's emergency medicine section.
He told the society at a conference that the move could help reduce problem drinking and cut admissions to casualty linked to alcohol.
Dr Mirza, a consultant at West Middlesex Hospital in London, said research in Scotland and the US has found that if patients speak to an alcohol liaison officer after attending A&E with a drink-related problem, they are less likely to need casualty treatment again in the future and more likely to drink less over the following year.
"There is a window of opportunity where these patients are receptive to changing their patterns of drinking and understanding more about alcohol," Dr Mirza told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Dr Zul Mirza, an A&E consultant at West Middlesex Hospital, however, enjoys picking up the mistakes the technical advisors let slip through.
"I sometimes think well that's not how I would do it' when I'm watching them," he says.
He also admits to having his favourites.
"Life in A&E is more like ER than Casualty, it reflects the true nature of going from one patient to another and is more energetic although that has probably made it sound more glamorous than it actually is!"
Despite an early ambition for a different glamorous career "like all boys I wanted to be a professional footballer" Dr Mirza decided medicine was the path for him and he trained in hospitals across London, including St Mary's, Chelsea and Westminster, and Ealing.
He then worked as a registrar at West Middlesex Hospital, before moving to his consultancy position five years ago.

At the tender age of 37, Dr Mirza is seen as youthful for his position.
"A lot of patients think I am rather young to be a consultant," he says.
However, his professionalism shines through and it is clear he is dedicated to his job.
The hospital currently has two consultants working the A&E department and Dr Mirza and his colleague, Dr Mike Bennett, alternate being on call.

Dr Mirza says: "Kids are always coming in with their fingers jammed in things, or toys stuck up their noses or in their ears.
...
"We have overcome the problems of the old department and overshot the targets," adds Dr Mirza.
"We have more staff and more technology in the department.Nurses are playing extended roles, for example ordering x-rays and taking blood."
As well as his hospital duties, Dr Mirza is involved in lecturing and is currently researching the best treatment for scaphoid fractures.
But despite the long hours and often heart-wrenching cases, Dr Mirza has not regretted his decision to leave the football league tables for the operating tables.
He says: "Medicine and the A&E department is an endlessly fascinating career."
