Professor receives recognition from the Queen
Professor John McClure, consultant histopathologist at the Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt (RJAH) Orthopaedic hospital and former British Red Cross chairman, has been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.  The professor has been appointed OBE for services to vulnerable people.
 
Professor McClure, who joined the department of musculoskeletal histopathology at Oswestry's RJAH in February 2004, will be officially awarded his OBE by the Queen at Buckingham Palace later this year. Commenting on the honour, Professor McClure said: "I was delighted to receive the award not only because it recognises my contribution to the British Red Cross but also because it indirectly acknowledges the work of the charity."

He stepped down as chairman of the British Red Cross at the end of 2006 after six years working in a voluntary capacity. Professor McClure has been involved with the British Red Cross since 1972 and is still guiding the high-level Federation of the Future process with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies based in Geneva.
