Parkinson’s Life is the proud recipient of a British Medical Association Patient Information Award 2016


Parkinson’s Life magazine was judged ‘Highly Commended’ in the British Medical Association Patient (BMA) Information Award 2016. The awards aim to support and encourage patient–centred care in meeting the needs of patients through the production of accessible, well-designed and clinically balanced information.

The BMA judging committee received 211 entries this year, up from 165 entries in 2015. BMA president Professor Pali Hungin presented this year’s awards at a reception at BMA House, London, UK last month.

The BMA Patient Information Awards judges said: “This is a well-designed resource which has used a clear methodology to solicit ideas from EPDA staff and users. The fourfold increase in dissemination is impressive… The commitment to update the website systematically is good and the news stories are presented attractively although it could be improved with more original content.”

Lizzie Graham, executive director of the European Parkinson’s Disease Association said: “We are so pleased that Parkinson’s Life has been recognised by the BMA as a vital resource for the international Parkinson’s community. We hope to continue making a positive impact in the future.”
