We are delighted to be able to report that nominations are now open for the Bevan Foundation’s third annual Bevan Prize for Health and Wellbeing.
The Prize, which is sponsored by the Open University, UNISON and the Aneurin Bevan Society, will be awarded to an individual and an organisation that have made an exceptional commitment to advancing health and wellbeing in their field, while embodying the founding principles of the NHS. A third prize will be awarded for lifetime achievement at the discretion of the judges.
Past winners include Cecilia Anim, current President of the Royal College of Nursing, Susan Semple, who works with the homeless community in Belfast and Professor Dame Carol Black (left), the 2014 winner of the Lifetime Contribution Award.
Jeremy Miles, Secretary of The Bevan Foundation said: “The NHS is one of our most cherished national institutions. This prize, named for the architect of the NHS, Aneurin Bevan, will once again celebrate all that is best about the Health Service and recognise those individuals and organisations that are making a positive contribution to equality of access to health and equality of health outcomes.”
A panel made up of David Brindle (Public Services Editor, The Guardian); Baroness Finlay of Llandaff; and Jaselle Williams (Trustee, Bevan Foundation) will judge nominations and award the 2015 Prize this July in the House of Commons, London.
