Origins of the Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine

Entries for the 2012 Hippocrates Prize are now closed.

Co-organized with poet and translator Michael Hulse and new member of the team post-doctoral humanities researcher Sorcha Gunne, the 2012 Hippocrates Prize for poetry and medicine has been launched and plans are underway for the associated 3rd International Symposium on Poetry and Medicine, to be held at the Wellcome Collection rooms in London on Saturday May 12th 2012, when the 2012 awards will be presented.  There is already strong international interest from potential contributors to the Symposium programme.

See the 2010 blog
to find out more about the origins of this major prize, one of the best funded anywhere in the world for a single original poem, the first awards symposium in 2010, and comments from the first NHS and international winners, and from the inaugural judges, broadcaster and writer James Naughtie, doctor and poet Dannie Abse, and Medical Director of the NHS Sir Bruce Keogh.
