The Medilink Healthcare Business Awards 2024

The Medilink North of England Healthcare Business Awards is a calendar highlight and a chance to recognise innovations and successes of life science companies across our region. The event showcases the very best examples of collaboration between industry, academia and the NHS.

Once again the standard of submissions was incredibly high, making the task of the judges particularly difficult. Our winners did exceptionally well in the light of such tightly contested categories.  

The prestigious event was held on the 21st March. Guests were welcomed by Mr Charles Turner DL, MBA, Master Cutler of The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire. This was followed by a keynote speech from Associate Professor Mr Austin McCormick, a Consultant Ophthalmic and Oculoplastic Surgeon at the Aintree University Hospital.

Congratulations to the winners on the evening and a massive thank you to all who submitted entries!
