A Langho man has been recognised by his local university for his significant contribution to paramedic practice.
Adrian Conboy received his Honorary Fellowship award from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) to acknowledge his distinguished career in the medical world.
The proud Lancastrian’s career has spanned 39 years in the health care industry, with 34 of those spent serving in the NHS Ambulance Service.
The pioneering paramedic was hugely instrumental in the creation of the service and the training of its people. He worked with UCLan in 2004 to develop the first ever BSc Paramedic Degree programme and later became an associate paramedic lecturer practitioner.
Adrian, who was joined by his family for his special day, accepted his prestigious honour in Preston’s Guild Hall in front of hundreds of graduates from the University’s schools of Health and Medicine and Dentistry.
