The awards have 12 categories which embrace most healthcare supply markets. These include: clinical support services, medical technology, healthcare analytics, consultancy, legal services, and property/estates. 

The winners will be announced at the Royal College of Physicians on 8 March.

Entrants demonstrated outstanding commitment to working in collaboration with the NHS through cutting edge innovation and service provision. The judges were impressed with the high standard of entries, testifying to the clear achievement of any shortlisted organisation.

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said: “Hundreds of organisations are working behind the scenes to help the NHS improve its services and facilities, and deliver better care for patients. Yet their contribution is often unseen.

“Our aim was to change that through the HSJ Healthcare Partnership Awards, which have given businesses the chance to showcase innovative projects and long term support programmes that are really making a difference to the NHS in these challenging economic times.”
