Dr Falk Pharma BASL British Liver Trust Awards – Applications Open!  

Could your team be a candidate for one of these prizes?

We are delighted to share the news with members that applications for the Dr Falk Pharma, BASL British Liver Trust Awards are open.

Dr Falk Pharma, BASL and the British Liver Trust all agree in the power of shared understanding to improve patient outcomes. These awards recognise the need to share excellence in clinical service development and improvements that have clear benefit for people with liver disease. Such work is rarely that of one individual or discipline, thus these awards are designed to enable teams to develop an idea or continue their work.

The awards represent an opportunity to achieve national recognition as well as financial support for career progression.

Dr Falk / BASL Innovation Award
One award up to a value of £2,000 for a project proposal in start-up, which would be completed prospectively over 12-24 months. The lead applicant will need a local mentor to support the project and will be supported to ensure the success of the project. The award is identified to facilitate research in an area relevant to improving either clinical service development or offering a benefit to patients with liver disease.

Dr Falk / BASL Quality and Service Improvement Awards
Two awards with a value of £1,000 to recognise work and projects in progress and / or completed within the last 3 years for which evidence of benefit can be shown. These awards are open to any team of healthcare professionals working in liver disease developing initiatives that have improved patient care.

Applications for both Awards are via the BASL website with a separate application form for each Award.
