As a champion of digital innovation in healthcare, the award category is a natural choice to get behind, says NHS Shared Business Services Managing Director Erika Bannerman.

“We are delighted to be able to support this award which recognises and celebrates those blazing a trail in the digital provision of healthcare.”
Previous winners of the NHS Improvement through Digital Innovation award include Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust’s pioneering use of AI to speed up stroke diagnoses as well as the team at University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire NHS Trust who oversaw the roll out of Freestyle Libre device to help diabetes patients manage their condition, freeing up valuable nursing time.
