The winners of the 2018 Health Business Awards have been announced at the Grange Hotel, London.
Presented by comedian and former Doctor Adam Richard Kay, NHS Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups were recognised for their excellence in 22 categories.
2018 marks the 70th anniversary of the NHS. While much remains to be done to ensure it can keep up with changing demands, the Health Business Awards is staged in order to recognise the many examples of innovation and excellence that happen every day.
Patient Data Award
