We rely on many organisations and individuals to give up their time and resources in the delivery of PACES every year. In recognition of this commitment, we have developed the PACES Champion Award. Both UK and international recipients will be chosen from nominations which can be made by anyone who is involved in the exam.

This year will be focused on recognising individuals who have worked especially hard to get PACES up and running again during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We were very sad to learn of the news that Dr Tapan Banerjee passed away recently after contracting COVID-19. Dr Banerjee was a physician at the Medical Research Institute in Kolkata and was a huge supporter of MRCP(UK) in India. He was one of the first Indian PACES examiners when MRCP(UK)  opened its first centre there in Chennai. He subsequently examined in both Kolkata and Chennai. He was a warm personality and was held in high esteem by all those who worked alongside him.
