Jason Brannan, Director, Medilink said: “Our sector is truly at the forefront of technology and healthcare, and while the organisations that deliver this technology are very often in the public gaze, the people and teams that make it happen are not, the Medilink Awards are about championing our truly great innovators and clinicians that transform healthcare across the North of England and globally.”
Medilink North of England welcome and encourage all healthcare organisations, clinicians, academics and innovators to enter the awards.
Healthcare is vital to the wellbeing and happiness of people’s lives and the Medilink North of England Healthcare Business Awards is an opportunity to recognise, celebrate and thank those who have contributed to the sector. The event is also a chance for individuals and organisations from across the North to come together, network and meet others who are changing and improving healthcare, life science and med-tech sectors in the North of England and beyond.
The Medilink North of England Healthcare Business Awards is also a fantastic opportunity to celebrate Northern organisations and the people behind them.
