SALE doctor Diana Forrest has received the MBE in the New Year Honours List for services to public health.

Dr Forrest, was a former director of public health at Knowsley Health and Wellbeing Headquarters on Merseyside.

She said: “I was thrilled to receive the MBE, and see it as a reflection of the wonderful team I had the privilege of working with in Knowsley, and also the culture within Knowsley which was so supportive of public health.

“ We were able to reduce heart disease and cancer rates, and improve men’s health at a faster rate than was happening nationally. I have always believed that prevention is better than cure, and continue to work in a voluntary capacity to improve quality of life in my home borough of Trafford.”
