Poetic therapy


A GP practice manager, an NHS education adviser, and a distinguished New Zealand poet are among the six finalists shortlisted for the first Hippocrates Prize for poetry and medicine announced this week.

The winner will receive a £15,000 award fund. Professor Donald Singer of Warwick Medical School, one of the founders of the prize, explains where the idea for the wards came from.
