The 2015 Bevan Prize for Health and Wellbeing has been launched today.

Nominations are now open for the third annual Prize which will recognise those who have made an outstanding contribution to health and wellbeing in the past year.

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, as well as embody 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, and Susan Semple, a healthcare coordinator working with the homeless community in Belfast.

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.”

Christina McAnea, UNISON’s Head of Health, said: “UNISON is very proud to be sponsoring the Bevan Prize again this year. The NHS remains the country’s most cherished institution, so it is only right that those achieving excellence within it are honoured in this way.”

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.
