Jenni Middleton, the editor of Nursing Times, was this week named “editor of the year” by the British Society of Magazine Editors.
The society, which is exclusively for magazine and website editors and senior editorial staff, held its annual awards ceremony on Tuesday at the Sheraton Grand London Park Lane Hotel, Piccadilly.
Ms Middleton, who joined Nursing Times in 2010, won the category for Business Brand – Weekly/Fortnightly/More Frequent.
The award judges said: “The winning title was praised for its integrity and campaigning spirit; refusing to toe any party line; speaking with great authority on behalf of its readership.”
Dr Crystal Oldman, chief executive of the Queen’s Nursing Institute, of which Ms Middleton recently became a trustee, said: “We would like to extend our congratulations to Jenni for this well-deserved accolade, which is a testament to all that she has achieved at Nursing Times.
“The staff and other trustees of the QNI look forward to working with Jenni as she takes up her role as a trustee of the QNI, with the expertise in healthcare communications that she brings,” she added.
Earlier this year, Ms Middleton also won the coveted PPA Award for Business Media Editor of the Year. Last year she was named editor of the year by the Medical Journalists’ Association.
