HSJ editor Alastair McLellan has been named journalist of the year (news, trade) in the annual Medical Journalism Awards. Judges said his 'comprehensive and authoritatative' exposé on star-ratings ('Milburn secured 3 stars for PM's trust') 'stood way above' the rest of the field. HSJ reporter Helen Mooney was shortlisted as best newcomer in the financing healthcare category in the awards, which were hosted by the Medical Journalists' Association and Norwich Union Healthcare.
