The CPHVA Education and Development Trust was created to fulfil the wishes of Dr Ian MacQueen, who was medical officer of health in Aberdeen and a Vice President and Trustee of what was then the Health Visitors’ Association (HVA). Dr MacQueen believed passionately in the contribution that health visitors make to the health of a population, especially in public health, and he wished to support this work and also reward individual health visitors for work that demonstrated excellence.
Established in 1997, it made its first award in 1999. The Trust, a registered charity, is served by a committee of Trustee’s who are supported by a Professional Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC is a group of 5 voluntary CPHVA members who prepare, administer and award all of the MacQueen award processes.
