Patient First, the UK's largest patient safety event, will return to London's ExCeL on 21-22 November 2017
The Health Business Awards, now entering their ninth year, have established a reputation for showcasing the success stories in the UK health sector. The awards ceremony recognises and celebrates the significant contributions made each year by organisations and individuals that work inside and alongside the NHS.
2017 is proving to be yet another year with NHS struggles firmly in the media spotlight. The population is living longer, the pressure on NHS staff is increasing, regional variation is widening and transparency continues to overshadow improvement. Yet, behind the publicised concerns, the NHS continues to transform the care it provides, expanding the breadth of its services and save millions of lives a year.
The 2017 award categories incorporate facilities, technology, human resources, hospital management and transport as well as the prestigious Outstanding Achievement in Healthcare award, which is presented to an NHS organisation that has achieved success in their role and brought benefits to the wider NHS through their dedication and expertise.
