Tammy Holmes, Innovation and Adoption Programme Manager at WMAHSN, said: "As an AHSN, we have experienced that innovators can come from industry, NHS, academia or third sector. Similarly, those buying and benefiting from innovations are from all sectors. These awards were developed to acknowledge the hard work going on throughout the West Midlands, and reward contributions towards our overall aim of accelerating the adoption of innovation to generate continuous improvement in the region’s health and wealth."
The closing date for all entries is 12 noon on Friday 27 May. However, if a high volume of entries is received this may close early. If you have any queries, please contact Tammy on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0121 371 8061.
