The HealthWatch annual award is presented to someone who has made significant steps either in medical research or in improving the public’s understanding of health issues by clarifying complicated and often misunderstood medical matters for the general public.
The recipient addresses the Annual General Meeting of HealthWatch.
Since the 1997 award, the text of the lecture is available in our archives – just click on the name of the recipient of the award to read.
We also present a series of awards to students of medicine and nursing and allied professions. Information about the HealthWatch Student Prize and past winners is in the student section of the website.
