Pulse columnist wins top award

Dr Phil Peverley has scooped the top prize for columnists at the magazine industry's Oscars.

The Sunderland GP, whose weekly column has appeared in Pulse since March last year, beat off six shortlisted rivals to become Columnist of the Year in the prestigious Periodical Publishers Association Awards.

Described by the judges

as 'thought-provoking, sparky, readable and funny', Phil's column has emerged successfully from two investigations from the GMC and seen off a referral to the Press Compliants Commission.

The judges also said: 'Dr Peverley is able to provide a lesson in how to write a compelling introduction that instantly hooks the reader.'

Phil picked up his award from Private Eye editor Ian Hislop at the ceremony at London's Grosvenor House hotel.
