Although nominations have now closed (May 15th), The Bevan Foundation has announced that the Bevan Prize for Health and Wellbeing will be awarded in recognition of an individual and group or organisation in any part of the UK who have made an outstanding contribution to health and wellbeing in their field in 2012, who promote the founding values of the National Health Service and work to ensure equality of access and equality of health outcomes.
The aim is to establish the Prize as an annual event to celebrate the values of the NHS. The Foundation is seeking nominees from a wide range of backgrounds. Nominees could include health care practitioners; voluntary and support groups; campaigners and activists; journalists, authors or bloggers; scientists, academics or researchers. The prize will be awarded this summer at an event in London on 1 July.
