Regional Health Innovation Awards

Celebrating Regional Innovation in Healthcare

Medipex and the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network are delighted to announce the launch of three new regional health innovation awards in partnership with Health Enterprise East, the Eastern Academic Health Science Network and the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network.

The NHS is facing challenges at both national and regional level to continue delivering world leading healthcare with limited resources.  Innovation has been identified as a key part of the solution to overcoming such challenges.  It is well recognised that NHS staff are coming up with innovative solutions to local, regional challenges every day.  Through identifying and celebrating such regional innovations, they may have the potential to be developed and adopted on a wider scale to benefit healthcare nationally.

Annual innovation competitions have been running in the Yorkshire & Humber and East of England regions for over 9 years, led by Medipex and Health Enterprise East respectively. This year the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network has partnered with Medipex and Health Enterprise East to run a dedicated competition and awards ceremony in the East Midlands region too.

Regional Innovation Awards 2014

The regional competitions, each with a series of categories, will launch week commencing 12th May 2014 and culminate in an Oscar style awards ceremony for short-listed entrants in each of the respective regions. The aim of the award ceremonies is to engage innovative health and care professionals working across the three regions and to celebrate and recognise achievement over the previous year.
