The award is conferred for high quality work that has made a difference to the science of metabolism and nutrition. Previous recipients of the award can be found here.




He was also awarded the Association Award by the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland on 15 September 2023 for his contributions to perioperative care, including fluid therapy, enhanced recovery after surgery and perioperative opioid use. The Association Award is awarded to anaesthetists and other individuals who have made significant contributions to the Association of Anaesthetists and its charitable foundation, its objects and goals, or its members.


Both these awards are testiment to Dileeps hard work and dedication to the field of perioperative medicine and of course ERAS. As a society we are exceptionally proud that one of our own has been recognised with these two prestigious awards.


Congratulations Dileep and thank you for all that you do.
