Dear Mr Boakye-Agyemang

Re – Nomination of Christopher B-Lynch, for a UK National Award.

I have two daughters, Mrs Abigail Martin and Mrs Emma Leckie. Both of them have cause to be extremely grateful to have been in the care of Christopher B-Lynch in their quest to have children. I shall not dwell here on their experiences for I know that they are both writing to you separately to support the nomination of Mr B Lynch for a National Award.

I am certain that many of his peers will comment from a position of true understanding of this distinguished service to the medical profession; I can comment as a ‘man in the street’.

I have from time to time come across young people who have been struggling to try to have children. Some spent money they could not really afford to have I.V.F. They are people of limited resources who could not dream of consulting such and eminent gynaecologist as Christopher B-Lynch.

Occasionally I have asked Mr B-Lynch if he would be kind enough to see these young people and send his bill to me. I have not, as yet, received a fee note; neither have they.

What I have received are visits from loving happy parents with their babies. In each case they have not needed I.V.F. to have children. What they did need was other more basic problems put to rights.

The man is a genius, but he has other qualities, which set him aside from many other gifted men. I paraphrase what his patients have told me: He has the ability to make you feel better the moment you walk into his consulting rooms. He makes you feel special. He makes you feel that, one way or another, working together, you will more than likely overcome whatever problem you have. He fills you with confidence, and you know deep in your heart that if, at the end, your are not able to have a baby, then it is just not possible. It will not be due to some oversight on his part. Some of the patients were apprehensive before their visit, but within a few moments of meeting him they were at ease and felt safe and secure. That is a very special gift indeed.

It is my view that Christopher B-Lynch should, at the very least, be knighted. If he were to be so them I have little doubt that many hundreds of grateful patients would be delighted to see that the Honours system had rewarded a man who truly deserved the honour. Were it left to me, he would be given a peerage. The nation needs people like him in the House of Lords. Exceptional men who have achieved great things in their chosen career. Gifted men who care.

Yours sincerely,
