What a fabulous evening! Judges had a difficult time shortlisting 15 categories. They identified Highly Commended and Winners for 13 of our 15 categories. Our Healthcare Hero Award was a special NHS70 category and was presented to a very special nominee. Our fifteenth category was Unsung Hero and everyone at the event voted for their hero using Slido.
