Doctors for the NHS was founded in 1976 by, amongst others, Dr Peter Fisher (after whom this prize is named) who believed in an NHS that was for the benefit of all patients, was not for profit, and was free at the point of delivery. Our sole purpose is to fight for the NHS and the public it serves. Membership is open to all doctors who share these commitments.
