Calling all AHPs and healthcare scientists:
Launching the Advancing Healthcare Awards 2021

Allied health professionals, healthcare scientists and those who work alongside them in support roles have until 15 March 2021 to enter the Advancing Healthcare Awards, the unique awards programme which crosses boundaries and fosters partnership working.

We are delighted to invite entries to the 2021 awards, launching at the end of a year when allied health professionals and healthcare scientists and the work that they do have really taken centre-stage. Now more than ever it’s important to recognise, celebrate and reward this work.

New for 2020: This year we’re pleased to announce a new healthcare science award – The Academy for Healthcare Science award for outstanding achievement by a Clinical Research Practitioner. From the Welsh Government we have the Award for Value Based Care and from the Department of Health Northern Ireland – the Award for reform and rebuild of Health and Social Care Services post COVID 19. For 2021 Chroma, in association with INPA, will be looking for Innovation in neurorehabilitation.

As we enter the new year we will be introducing other categories and updates will be provided on the website and social media. The awards will be presented at a ceremony to be held on 21 May 2021.
