The John Lennard Jones Medal is the highest accolade that the Association can bestow. It is awarded only to individuals who have given significant and consistent contribution to BAPEN over many years. It relates specifically to BAPEN activities rather than the greater good of nutrition as a whole. It will often be awarded on retirement either from practice or from BAPEN. The award is the gift of Independent Advisory Committee (IAC), who will consider nominations from any of the membership.

The award will not necessarily be restricted to one per annum and will not necessarily be awarded if, in the opinion of the IAC, no suitable candidate is proposed.  In order to avoid any suggestion of bias and conflict of interest, the decision of the IAC, who act as an independent body, will be binding.

The medal will be publicly presented by a member of the IAC at the Annual BAPEN meeting.

Nominations should be 1 side of A4 from one proposer and one seconder who both must be full BAPEN members, giving reasons for the nomination and should be submitted to This email address is being protected from spambots.
