Chamberlain Dunn – Advancing Healthcare Awards 2020: Going virtual and green

The winners of the 2020 Advancing Healthcare Awards will be announced on Friday 16 October at our virtual awards ceremony, an inevitable change from our usual lunchtime celebration in Central London. It will be a packed virtual ceremony where we will hear from our sponsors, special guests and amazing finalists, a group of awe-inspiring people at the best of times – but doubly so during COVID-19. This is our time to celebrate and share the work of these dedicated professions and people.

Nearer the date we will send you the link to the ceremony so that you can share the occasion with us but in the meantime we are delighted to announce the winners of the Year of Green Action award for AHPs and healthcare scientists demonstrating environmental awareness, kindly sponsored by DEFRA. This category is new for 2020 and we received a wealth of ideas and suggestions covering many aspects of the green agenda.

To find out who won this important award please take a look at our Going Green publication here – a compilation of entries into this category, from the antimicrobial properties of snails to smoking cessation in prisons, from telephone assessment of people with back pain to music therapy to improve Walking Speed. We hope you find this a valuable resource. Please share it widely.

And finally, don’t forget to register for our first Meet the finalists webinar, to hear from the finalists of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) Biomedical Scientist of the Year category on Friday 31 July (12-1pm) – You’ll hear from Dr Guy Orchard, Viapath; Dr Sarah Pitt, University of Brighton and Dr Alison Watts, Serious Hazards of Transfusion (SHOT) and chair, Allan Wilson, President of the Institute of Biomedical Science.
