I am thrilled to win the Yvonne Carter Award this year, not least because it celebrates the life of an inspirational leader. The award will enable me to travel to Denmark where the use of alternative methods of consultation are more widespread than in the UK. I hope this will provide valuable context and information that will be applicable in UK primary care. It will also allow me to build international research collaborations.- Helen Atherton
