RCoA Payne Stafford Tan Award - An Award for Clinical Excellence

This award was originally established through the generosity of an American friend of the College, Mr Norman Knight, in honour of the medical careers of Professor James P Payne, Dr J A Timothy Stafford and Dr Oon Tan.

The aim of the prize is to mark excellence in clinical practice, teaching or research in anaesthesia, critical care or pain management. The award is open to any member or fellow of the College, and comprises a grant (to a maximum of £1,000) to be used for educational purposes such as attendance at a major conference or the purchase of educational materials.

The recipient will be expected to provide a short report outlining how the funds have been used.
