Northcroft Silver Medal

Lionel Northcroft OBE was president of IHEEM (The Institute of Hospital Engineering, as it was then) from 1967 to 1969. This period was during the Institute’s most formative years.

Northcroft’s work received public recognition by his appointment as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. A hall at Eastwood Park Training Centre, Falfield, the Northcroft Hall, is named after Northcroft. The Northcroft Silver Medal was established by Northcroft’s own generosity. The medal is to be awarded annually to the author of the technical paper published in the Health Estate Journal considered to have contributed most to the advancement of hospital engineering.
