Benenden Healthcare sponsors award for local authorities

22nd February 2012

Leading UK health & wellbeing mutual, Benenden Healthcare Society, is sponsoring the ‘Co-operative working to reduce health inequalities’ category of the MJ Awards 2012.

MJ magazine is the online magazine for local authority business and the MJ Achievement Awards recognise the best individuals and teams working for local authorities today.

Paul Keenan, External Affair Manager at Benenden Healthcare, said: ‘With reduced budgets providing extra challenges for local authorities, the area of health inequality is one that takes on extra resonance.

‘Local authorities are rising to the challenge, using co-operative working to ensure that inequality of healthcare provision from one area to another is minimised.

‘This award will recognise the best examples of this co-operative working, and we look forward to reviewing the entries.’

Co-operatives UK Secretary General Ed Mayo is joining Benenden Healthcare to judge the category, alongside Lorian Rein, Director of Services at Oakdale.

Ed Mayo said: ‘One of the values of co-operative enterprise is one of equality and in a world of growing health and economic inequalities, this award is one that everyone with a care for health will want to learn from.’

The category has proven to be an incredibly popular category, with the awards as a whole receiving a record number of entries for 2012 – showcasing how local authorities have addressed the challenges of reduced budgets.
