Griffiths honoured by award.

Accountancy Age deputy news editor Ben Griffiths has won an award for his coverage of corporate governance in the NHS.

He was presented with the prize for journalists under the age of 25 in this year’s Millennium Award for Excellence in Business and Management Press Journalism run by the Institute of Internal Auditors.

Judges said his piece, Public sector gets a private lifeline (Accountancy Age, 1 July 1999), which examined the implementation of the NHS’ controls assurance framework, was ‘an excellent summary of new corporate governance challenges facing trusts and health authorities.’

Griffiths, who was among 30 entrants for the awards, has been with Accountancy Age for two years. As well as covering public sector issues, he has also written extensively on tax and the voluntary sector. At last week’s ceremony in central London, he was presented with a #1,000 cheque.
