Imran Khan awarded fellowship by Royal College of Physicians

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan has been awarded an honorary fellowship by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE) in recognition for his contribution to cancer services.

The fellowship has been awarded for his contribution through the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre.

The RCPE is a professional membership organisation with a membership of over 10,000 “fellows” in 91 countries.

Imran Khan founded Shaukat Khanum on December 29, 1994.

The inspiration for the hospital and research centre came after the death of his mother, Mrs Shaukat Khanum, due to cancer.

The trust uses donations to help patients with cancer through the application of modern methods of curative and palliative therapy free of cost.
