Three general practitioners of Indian origin are among Britain’s 50 best doctors who have helped shape health care, according to Pulse, a leading medical publication.
The three doctors who figure in the magazine’s annual list of 50 best GPs are Kamlesh Khunti, Chaand Nagpaul and Kailash Chand. Khunti, 49, who graduated from the University of Dundee in 1984, is a leading diabetes expert.
He was a GP in Leicester for over 20 years, and is currently a professor of diabetes and cardiovascular medicine at the University of Leicester.
Nagpaul, who topped Pulse’s 2010 list of up-and-coming GPs, graduated from the University of London in 1985. Based in Stanmore, north London, Nagpaul is seen as a natural TV spokesperson.
Chand, who graduated from Punjabi University, Patiala, in 1974, spent 25 years as a GP in Ashton-under-Lyne.
In 2010, he received the Order of the British Empire from the Princess Royal, after being recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for his services to the National Health Service.
