Miss Shah said: “It was an absolute honour to be part of this incredible investiture at Buckingham Palace and to meet with, and chat to, His Majesty about the importance of prostate cancer health checks, screening and awareness.”

Over the Christmas break, Miss Shah and her team staged Peterborough’s first community clinic with dozens of men boarding the prostate health check bus in the city centre.

The event was so successful, that similar clinics will now be planned for 2024 to meet demand.

Since introducing her Fighting Prostate Cancer campaign in community settings around the UK in 2016, more than 3,000 men have been screened – leading to the detection of around 100 cancer cases.

North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust continues to operate its GP referral Fast-Track Prostate Assessment clinics at Stamford and Rutland Hospital, with a team led by Miss Shah and at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon.
