Medical Journalism Prize for McCartney

A Glasgow-based journalist has been named joint winner in an international medical journalism competition.

Margaret McCartney has finished joint first in the European School of Oncology’s Best Cancer Reporter Awards – established three years ago, by the school, to encourage better quality media coverage of cancer and to recognise the many examples of outstanding cancer journalism.

She and her co-winner, Linda Geddes, each receive a prize of €7500. McCartney writes a weekly column for the Financial Times Weekend.
