British Medical Journal (January 2010)
BMJ Awards are back for the second year
The shortlists for the BMJ Group Awards 2010 have just been announced. The 11 awards include three new categories: primary care team of the year, secondary care team of the year, and junior doctor of the year.

The awards recognize individuals, organizations, and initiatives that have made outstanding contributions to health care. More than 700 nominations had to be whittled down to produce shortlists of a reasonable size.

For all except the lifetime achievement award the winners will be chosen by expert panels. For the lifetime achievement award the 117 nominations were reduced to a shortlist of 10, choosing candidates on the basis of who has, over their working lives, made a unique and substantial contribution to improving health care, whether in clinical practice, public health, health policy, medical education, or medical research.

Voting begins on Monday, January 4th
