The Dundas medal was introduced by PATCH and The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh to recognise efforts to improve the provision of palliative care for patients when they are in hospital. The Dundas medal commemorates a former Aberdeen anaesthetist who died in 2014 from hepatobiliary cancer.
It is open to any individuals or teams, medical, nursing or paramedical working in the UK. The applicants or the applying teams are invited to submit an example from their own clinical experience detailing how they have made a difference to the provision of palliative care in their own hospital setting.
