Fellow Tim Draycott and his team win prestigious Queen’s Award

10 March 2014

Tim Draycott, Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Bristol and Fellow of the Health Foundation, has been awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Award for his work on Obstetrics and Neonatal Practice. Tim and his team work on a research-based training programme that makes labour and birth safer for babies and mothers across the world.

Tim has been a Health Foundation Fellow since 2010, and collected the Award from the Queen at a prestigious event at Buckingham Palace at the end of February.

Commenting on the Award he said: 'The research in obstetric and neonatal practice has made a positive difference to mothers and babies and will continue to save thousands of lives throughout the world. We are proud of this achievement that highlights the ground-breaking research being carried out by Bristol academics.'

Tim also recognised and praised the Health Foundation for granting him his Fellowship, without which, in his words: 'I would not have had the time and head space to develop our work and I feel that this award is definitely a shared success.'

The Health Foundation congratulates Tim and his team on this important achievement.
