Shaun Lintern, a key member of the Nursing Times news team, has won a journalism award for his coverage of nursing issues.
Shaun was this week named as the “New Business News Journalist of the Year” at the Professional Publishers Association’s “New Talent Awards”.
The awards, which were given out a ceremony in London on Tuesday evening, recognise the brightest and best new stars in the magazine and business media industry.
Shaun joined Nursing Times and its sister title Health Service Journal in April last year.
Since then he has covered news on workforce issues for Nursing Times, writing extensively on the current attempts to alter the Agenda for Change pay framework, NHS staffing levels and the Francis report from the Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust public inquiry.
He won his award in particular for two stories. These included his exclusively report in September that student nurse training places had been slashed by more than 2,500 in three years, which was accompanied by warnings of a “national disaster” in care.
Secondly, Shaun was recognised for his story last July revealing full details of the proposed changes to nurses’ national pay and conditions being sought by government negotiators.
