The health magazine editors, including editor-in-chief Kate White, were awarded a total of £1,000 in cash prizes for their coverage of the coronavirus pandemic.
The magazine also won an award for the most accurate coverage of a coronaviruses pandemic, the Health and Social Care Information Council said in a statement.
The awards for this year’s ‘health and social care’ mag awards were announced at the prestigious annual meeting of the British Medical Association (BMA) in Birmingham.
The winners are listed below:The winner is The Guardian, who won the best health journalism prize.
The winner of this year will be the BBC News Magazine, which won the ‘most important news story’ prize.
A separate list of the winners will be announced on Wednesday.
The health awards have been recognised as a great success at a time when the BMA is struggling to find a buyer.
The BMA said in November that it had reached a tentative agreement with the publishers of The Times to buy The Guardian from them.
The move was welcomed by the paper’s editor-at-large, Paul Dacre, who described the award as “an important victory for the BME community”.
He said: “The BME communities and our colleagues have been a crucial element in helping us transform The Times into a more professional and balanced publication.”
This is a great achievement for The Guardian and a huge credit to our readers, who have been part of this transformation and helped shape the future of this respected magazine.
