A Louth man has been given a ‘feeling of surrealism’ after being honoured by the Queen for his groundbreaking mental health work.
David Margarson was one of seven people from the county to be chosen in the Queen’s Jubilee Honours List for a British Empire Medal. Last week he proudly received his medal from the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, Tony Worth, at the Splash at Little Cawthorpe.
He was recognised for his sterling work between 2009 and 2011 which saw him help set up and maintain a service to support people suffering from work-related mental health problems.
Within the Lincolnshire NHS he championed the service which, after being referred by a GP, offers vital support to help get people back to work or regain employment after enduring stress, anxiety or bullying.
In David’s time at the helm the scheme had over 700 referrals and is still going strong despite cuts across the health sector. Read David’s remarkable story in full in the Leader on Wednesday.
