This prize commemorates William Rose, Apothecary of London, whose court case of 1701-04 established the legal foundation of General Practice in England and Fraser Rose, a co-founder of the Royal College of General Practitioners. The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London and the Royal College of General Practitioners are pleased to announce that the Rose Prize for original work in the History of General Practice in the British Isles will be awarded in spring 2015.
Submissions are invited from those with an interest in general practice including historians and lay historians. They can apply either as individuals or as a group who are, or who have been, involved in primary health care in the British Isles. The work should be original and specifically written for the Rose Prize, with demonstrable emphasis on primary source material. It should also be appropriately illustrated and suitably bound. Any topic on the History of General Practice in the British Isles may be chosen. Typescript entries should be between 4-6,000 words. Submissions in other media will be accepted provided that they are of comparable intellectual rigor. Publication will be encouraged.
The award will be presented at Apothecaries’ Hall in the summer of 2015 and the winner(s) will be expected to give a short presentation of their work.
The winner(s) will have their name(s) engraved on the plinth of the Rose Bowl, which they will keep for two years, and they will also receive a suitably inscribed certificate.
There is a £200 prize and the winner will be able to bring a guest to accompany them at the Fellows Symposium
