Mark Flannagan communique awards
Mark Flannagan, chief executive of healthcare charity Beating Bowel Cancer, has been recognised for his campaigning work at the Communiqué Awards 2012 in the category Healthcare Communications Advocate.

The award is given to an individual who has made an “outstanding contribution through healthcare communication to public health throughout their career” with judges highlighting Flannagan's most recent efforts working with the UK Department of Health on the Be Clear on Cancer campaign.

“For the first time ever bowel cancer was a national media focus,” said one. “The campaign highlighted some rather unpleasant signs of bowel cancer and I am sure that there will be a correlation in earlier diagnosis and ultimately recovery for so many more people as a result.”

In addition to his work at Beating Bowel Cancer, Flannagan (pictured, left) has over 25 years' experience in communications, including spells at the Royal College of General Practitioners, Royal College of Nursing, Diabetes UK, the BBC and the homelessness charity, Crisis.

He was also deputy director of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), supporting efforts to lobby for a ban on tobacco advertising and a ban on smoking in public places.

The Communiqué Awards, produced by PMLiVE publisher PMGroup, are designed to recognise and commend excellence and best practice in healthcare communications that ultimately deliver real improvements in healthcare, do the right thing for patients, build trust with stakeholders and enhance industry reputation.

Previous winners of the Healthcare Communications Advocate include Professor Sir Mike Richards, national clinical director for cancer and Baroness Julia Neuberger, former chief executive of the King's Fund.

Also honoured the 2012 event were CEO of the ABPI, Stephen Whitehead, and Sudler & Hennessey's Nick May, who both picked up individual awards.
