Congratulations to all winners and finalists in the NHS in the North Excellence in Supply Awards 2019 

 

A host of health and care organisations and small businesses from across the North West Coast have collected honours in this year’s NHS in the North Excellence in Supply Awards.

The awards, hosted by the NHS Northern Customer Board and the Innovation Agency, celebrate the work of businesses, third sector organisations and the NHS in collaborating to deliver great patient care.

The awards are sponsored by the Innovation Agency, Health Innovation Manchester and Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network.

Cheshire company Healthcare Communications won the prestigious Supplier of the Year award, as well as carrying off the Support Services award.

NHS award-winners included Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, North West Shared Infrastructure Services and Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria, which jointly won the NHS Procurement Innovation Award.

Meanwhile, Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (now part of Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) carried off the NHS Supplier Engagement award.

Dr Liz Mear, Chief Executive of the Innovation Agency, said:

“All the award winners deserve huge congratulations. At their heart, these awards showcase some fantastic collaborations between NHS organisations and their partners that ensure improved patient care.”

Mick Guymer, Chair of the NHS Northern Customer Board, added:

“The quality and diversity of the work that’s being rolled out across the region is very impressive. It’s very encouraging that so many collaborations are taking place to overcome the challenges we face and deliver efficiencies and better care.”
