The Advancing Healthcare Awards 2019, is a unique award programme for AHPs and healthcare scientists, which crosses boundaries and fosters partnership working.

We’d like to thank everyone who entered this year. As always we received an amazing range of outstanding entries and shortlisting was a very difficult job for our judges. You can take a look at the shortlist here and we hope that you join with us in congratulating the finalists. We look forward to seeing them on 26 February for the judging day.

New for 2019 – this year we’re delighted that the Institute of Biomedical Science is sponsoring the Biomedical Scientist of the Year award and we also have two new awards, the AHP Clinical Leadership Award sponsored by Allied Health Solutions and the AHCS Award for inspiring the healthcare science workforce of the future. Also we welcome the support of the College of Podiatry with their Rising Star award.

The overall winner in 2018 was Malcolm Robinson, chief biomedical scientist, blood transfusion, Western Sussex NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust, for his Harveys Gang project. Malcolm is winner of the Health Services Laboratories Biomedical Scientist of the Year Award 2018 and has gone on to be a winner in the BBC One Show NHS Patients Awards
