Policy Exchange “very much part of the national debate and clearly influential”: Alan Rusbridger at Prospect Annual Think Tank Awards

Policy Exchange came first in two categories at last night’s prestigious Prospectmagazine 20th Annual Think Tank Awards – winning first place for Advocacy, and Health, Science and Medicine think tank of the year.

The judges – including former NHS England Chief Executive Lord Stevens of Birmingham – praised Policy Exchange’s Health and Social Care Unit, headed by Robert Ede with Dr Sean Phillips as Senior Fellow, for its “measurable impact on policy development and shaping government thinking on a range of areas including public health and ministerial accountability for the NHS”.

Prospect’s Editor Alan Rusbridger – formerly the Editor of The Guardian and then Principal of Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford – in giving the Advocacy prize to Policy Exchange, remarked that the think tank is “very much part of the national debate and clearly influential.”
