Former secretary of the NOAH Code of Practice, Desmond Hutchinson, has been given a special award for his contribution to animal health.

Desmond was appointed Secretary to NOAH’s Code of Practice Committee in 1997 and is set to retire in April. During his 22 years of service, he has attended more than 70 case meetings and processed some 120 cases.

Presenting the award at NOAH’s VIP lunch in London, NOAH chair James Brannan explained the importance of the Code and Desmond’s work. “He has always worked tirelessly for the Code of Practice Committee, retaining his sense of humour in what could be challenging discussions.

“Desmond’s outstanding services to our industry must be acknowledged. He is highly respected by his peers both past and present and, of course, by the NOAH secretariat. His work has assisted us in maintaining high promotional standards for veterinary medicines.”
