Bevan Prize for Health and Well-being 2013

July 25th 2013

The inaugural Bevan Prize for Health and Well-being was awarded on Monday 1st July in Westminster to celebrate one individual and organisation who have made an outstanding contribution to health and well-being in their field in the past year (1st January 2012-31st December 2012).  

The presentation event, held in the Attlee Room at Portcullis House was hosted by Dr Hywel Francis MP, attracted around 90 guests from across England and Wales, and included nominees, nominators, MPs, peers and other interested parties. 

Prizes were awarded by Baroness Ilora Finlay of Llandaff, Christina McAnea Head of Health at UNISON and Jaselle Williams, Trustee of the Bevan Foundation and Secretary of the Aneurin Bevan Society, representing the judges.

The winners were as follows:

Individual: Cecila Anim, nurse specialist and Deputy President of the RCN

Organisation: Women’s Health in South Tyneside (WHiST)

Lifetime Contribution: Dr Julian Tudor Hart

The evening was enjoyed by all, with a great deal of support for the Prize and its values and a high level of enthusiasm for the calibre of the shortlist and winners. Each of the winners spoke very movingly about their work and how much winning the Prize meant to them. One of the key features of the event was the diversity of the attendees – from eminent oncologists to community based support groups, all drawn together by their shared dedication for the NHS.
