Professor Iain Cameron, chair of MDDUS, said: "On behalf of MDDUS, I wish to record our gratitude for Her Majesty’s unstinting contribution to public life.
“Throughout her reign, she acknowledged the tireless work of the NHS in caring for the nation. Indeed, only last year the Queen awarded the NHS the George Cross and said it was an award for staff ‘past and present, across all disciplines and all four nations'.
“We are deeply saddened to learn of her passing and join with the nation in paying our respects.”
