A consultant paediatrician at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital, Dr Margaret Crawford, has been awarded the MBE for her child protection role across Lincolnshire.

Dr Crawford joined Pilgrim in 1983 and, as well as seeing young patients at the children’s ward in Boston, she runs clinics in Grantham and Skegness.

Her county-wide role in child protection is part of multi-agency drive to help children who have suffered abuse or neglect and also involves representatives from the police, social care and education.

It’s likely Dr Crawford will receive her MBE at St James’s Palace from a member of the royal family later this year.

She said: “I am very excited.

“It was totally unexpected and it’s a great honour.”

Originally from London, Dr Crawford is married to Geoff Day and has two grown-up daughters, Helen and Susie.
