BAPM Awards renamed after Gopi Menon and now open for entries

From 2020 the BAPM Awards will be known as the BAPM Gopi Menon Awards in memory of BAPM's former President.

Gopi was a strong believer in quality improvement and celebrating the achievements of the whole perinatal team. He was integral to the development of these awards before his untimely death in 2019.

They celebrate excellence and those making a difference in perinatal care, particularly smaller scale or individually led projects, or examples of local and regional excellence. The application deadline is 19 April and the categories for 2020 are:

Improving quality in perinatal care

Supporting the perinatal team

Excellence in research or innovation

Making a difference for families

Outstanding contribution to BAPM by a trainee

Outstanding contribution to BAPM by a nurse, ANNP or midwife

Entries for the 2020 awards are now open and winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 9 June as part of the Perinatal Medicine 2020 conference.
