Mr Frank Chinegwundoh, 52, has spent 17 years working in Newham, specialising in cancer care and raising awareness about prostate cancer among men from the African Carribbean community.
But in addition to his day job, Mr Chinegwundoh has also set up a drop in clinic persuading men to be tested for possible prostate cancer symptoms.
The clinic has been so successful that it recently won a Quality in Care, Excellence in Oncology award in the Helping People Live Longer category. It was also highly commended in the Patient Experience section.
He believes his honour in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List may have been awarded for this additional work and he is overjoyed at receiving it .
He said: “I am delighted and thrilled. It is amazing and I am overwhelmed, so I feel on top of the world. It is great to be recognised at the top for things done ‘over and above’.
