The Idea Behind The Prize The prize was initially set up by several colleagues and friends of Robbie who wanted to continue his legacy. The first event was held in 2009 for anaesthesia trainees to submit their work to from around the region. The inaugural winner was Dr Lucy Bates. Since 2009, a yearly event has continued to be held, with the winner receiving the coveted trophy. In 2016, the event was transitioned across to NWRAG to uphold and continue the legacy. Please see our winners page to see who won and look out for our adverts for our next meeting where we will be holding the next competition.
