A PhD researcher at the CCP has become the inaugural recipient of a publication award at the SSF Graduate School Prize-Giving Ceremony at the University of East Anglia.
Mary Guy, who is also a researcher at the UEA Law School, was awarded the prize in recognition of a paper she has recently co-authored with Dr. André den Exter (Erasmus University Rotterdam). Their article, ‘Market Competition in Health Care Markets in The Netherlands: Some Lessons for England?‘, was published in a special issue of the prestigious Medical Law Review that was devoted to discussion on the impact of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 on Health Law and, in particular, markets and vulnerable patients.
Professor Morten Hviid, Director of the CCP, led the congratulations upon hearing of Mary’s achievement: “It is great that research by one of CCP’s members on the very complex and topical theme of competition law and health care is recognised in this way.”
Dr. Michael Hamilton, Director of Postgraduate Research at the UEA Law School, described Mary’s award as ‘hugely deserved‘ in light of the numerous considerations taken into account by the Selection Panel: ‘The assessment criteria include the quality and originality of research; its importance to both the immediate and wider research community; its potential interest to the wider community in terms of public engagement; and the potential for the paper to generate future research.‘
In presenting the award, Dr. Yann Lebeau (Associate Dean of Postgraduate Research in the Faculty of Social Sciences) praised Mary for developing research links with other institutions through her co-authorship. Professor Jacqueline Collier (Executive Dean of SSF) was on hand to present Mary with a certificate and a prize of £200. Congratulations Mary!
