John Bolton Memorial Award

The John Bolton Memorial Award commemorates the life of John Bolton, who was President of The Institute from 1985 to 1986.

John Bolton spent the majority of his career in the National Health Service and he gained many pro-motions during this time. He was Chief Engineer with United Liverpool Hospital, then Deputy Regional Engineer with the Leeds Regional Hospital Board and from there moved to Regional Engineer with the East Anglian Regional Hospital Board. Following a reorganisation within the department he was further promoted to the new post of Chief Works Officer with overall responsibility for Works and Estate Management.

John Bolton’s connection with the Institute was long standing; he was a regular attendee at the Annual Conferences and a Guest speaker at the Annual Dinner. He encouraged the involvement of his technical expert colleagues to attend the Institute’s one day seminars and often participated himself. He was made a Companion of the most Honourable Order of the Bath in the New Years Hon-ours List in 1985.
