The British Medical Association Book Awards 2015
I was pleased to travel to London on 3rd September 2015 for the BMA Book Awards 2015. My book on diagnosing and treating CFS had been put forward in the "Best Popular Medicine" category by my publisher, Georgina Bentliff, of Hammersmith Books. To my surprise, it had been shortlisted from a pool of 630 titles and here we were, my daughter, Ruth, and I, having lunch in London, before the "big event".
The proceedings started at 5pm in the Paget Room, where we were met by Craig Robinson and his wife, Penny, early birds! Craig had contributed Chapter 8 of my book and is also one of my patients. A few minutes later, we were joined by Hania Baker, the editor of my book, and my former adviser and Secretary, now enjoying a well earned retirement! Then, Georgina Bentliff and David Thompson, of Action PR, completed the party.
Around 6pm we all went upstairs to the Great Hall and after a short introduction by Dr Mark Porter, Chairman of the BMA Council, the awards were announced by Miss Jacky Berry, BMA Librarian.
We didn't win! But we were all very happy to receive a "Highly Commended" certificate.
After this we had a hot supper, courtesy of the BMA, and then gradually made our separate ways home.
Of course, this award is not just for me ; it is also for all my staff, for my patients, and non-patients, alike, and, for the members of the Dr Myhill Facebook groups, who have all supported me through the years, read my book and website and given me such courage to keep going!
David Thompson took some pictures and we have placed these below, along with a scan of the certificate! Finally, here is the link to the BMA booklet on the awards ceremony - BMA Awards Booklet 2015
Many thanks to you all!
