Bright Ideas in Health Awards

The AHSN NENC is proud to host an annual awards ceremony to celebrate innovation in healthcare across the North East and North Cumbria.

The Bright Ideas in Health Awards celebrates the achievements of individuals and teams working within the NHS, industry and academia, who have risen to the challenge of telling us how, and where, they believe that the services provided to patients can be improved, either through a technical innovation or through better service delivery.

Everyone can play a part in developing innovative solutions to the healthcare challenges that we face every day. The competition, depending upon the category, is open to all SMEs, NHS organisations and academic institutions in the North East of England and North Cumbria.
