Pulse editor Nigel Praities took top honours last night at the Medical Journalists’ Association (MJA) Awards when he won the Editor of the Year Award, one of the most prestigious accolades within the health and medical media.

A very familiar face on the MJA’s Award podium, this is the second time Nigel has won the award, and he has also been highly commended on two previous occasions.

Like all the 16 categories, the Editor of the Year was fiercely contested. It is open to editors of publications, health pages/sections or websites, with judging criteria based on a detailed review of three submitted pieces of work.

The judges praised Nigel's knowledge of his audience, his tenacity and the strength of Pulse campaigning on behalf of GPs.
