The 2013 Bevan Prize for Health and Wellbeing
The Bevan Foundation is delighted to announce the inaugural Bevan Prize for Health and Wellbeing.
The Prize will be awarded in recognition of an individual and group or organisation in any part of the United Kingdom who have made an outstanding contribution to health and well being in their field in the past year (1st January 2012 – 31st December 2012), who promote the founding values of the National Health Service, i.e. comprehensive treatment, within available resources; universal access, based on need; and services delivered free at the point of delivery and work to ensure equality of access and equality of health outcomes.
They are seeking nominees from a wide range of backgrounds. Nominees could include health care practitioners and professionals; scientists, academics or researchers; authors, journalists or bloggers; voluntary and support groups; or campaigners or activists. Nominations are now open via the Bevan Foundation website until 30th April 2013.
Entries will be adjudicated by their panel: Prof Sir Mansel Aylward, chair of Public Health Wales; Geoffrey Goodman, past Chairman and now honorary Vice-President of the Aneurin Bevan Society; and Jaselle Williams, Bevan Foundation trustee. The prizes (one recognising an individual and one recognising an organisation or group) will be awarded in London in July in conjunction with the 65th anniversary of the National Health Service.
We look forward to celebrating the achievements of individuals and organisations from across the UK who are working hard to protect and promote the ethos behind the National Health Service, one of our best loved national institutions.
We hope you will help to spread the word to relevant organisations and individuals in your area who could participate in this prestigious award.
