Time is running out to apply for this year's WMAHSN's Celebration of Innovation Awards - and to gain access to all the benefits of being shortlisted.
The awards will be presented at the glitzy Celebration of Innovation Event in the summer, and reflect the WMAHSN's dual aim of improving health and creating wealth, as well as the organisation's key priorities and themes. There are also special awards for innovative individuals or teams and innovative organisations.
Following the success of last year's awards, this year there are even more categories to apply for, celebrating the best in healthcare innovation across the region. The benefits of winning or being shortlisted for an award include:
The 12 categories include the Innovative Organisation Award and the Innovator/Innovative Team of the Year Award, with further prizes up for grabs in the areas of Economic Impact, Excellence in Wellness and Prevention of Illness, MidTECH Best NHS Invention or Innovation, Patient Safety, Supporting Self Care, Social Enterprise, Medicines Optimisation, Mental Health, Industry Collaboration and Advanced Diagnostics, Genomics and Precision Medicine. Take a look at the full list of awards criteria here, as well as the application forms for individuals and organisations (to apply for the Innovative Organisation and the Innovator/Innovative Team of the Year Awards) and for innovations (to apply for the other categories).
