The NHS Confederation and AHSN Network are committed to supporting health and social care to adopt the innovations that will make the service sustainable for the next generation.

This awards programme is designed to shine a light on what the NHS and its partners are doing to meet the challenges it faces. The unrivalled networks of the AHSNs and NHS Confederation can both tap into the very latest innovative practice and share this knowledge with the leaders that can ensure adoption at scale and pace.

Supporting the awards programme means your organisation can work with us throughout the year to celebrate innovation and maximise its impact on the delivery of care.

From the judging process to the development of legacy materials, we want our supporters to be active and equal partners, contributing their insight and knowledge.

Association with the different aspects of innovation will help you to highlight the relevance of your brand to a wide audience across the health and care landscape – promoting your service and values.
