The Advancing Healthcare Awards 2021: Sponsors

We are delighted to have the support from the following organisations

SCottish Government

The Scottish Government has sponsored the Advancing Healthcare Awards category of Improving Quality; Measuring and Demonstrating Impact for AHPs since its inception in 2003 and Driving Improvement for HCS, since its inception in 2016.

Our awards categories focus on improving the experience of both service users and the staff who are delivering services, aiming to create better patient outcomes and address health inequalities. In recognising the importance of innovation and leadership in delivering change we believe we can create a sustainable person-centred service, fit for the 21st century and beyond.


The Welsh Government award seeks to recognise the achievements of healthcare scientists and allied health professionals in delivering services that deliver high value when using public resources and which seek to deliver the best possible outcomes.  Value based healthcare is the equitable, sustainable and transparent use of the available resources to achieve better outcomes and experiences for every person. The award winner will have demonstrated how their innovation increased sustainable high value in the delivery of health and/or social care services

We offer research grants to members to advance biomedical science which supports their original research into scientific developments.

Our publications and training events ensure our members are kept up to date on the latest scientific developments and news. Through public relations and marketing campaigns, we raise awareness of the vital role biomedical science plays in healthcare and promote career opportunities in the profession.

Attend Anywhere was founded in Melbourne in 1998 and has been changing the way healthcare is delivered ever since.

The company has been at the leading edge of using video technology in the health sector for many years, collaborating with governments, hospitals and health systems in helping to offer patients the option of attending appointments online, via a high-quality video call.

More than technology, Attend Anywhere offers an enablement model and framework that has evolved over years of collaboration with clinicians, health services, medical colleges, governments and universities. It addresses barriers to scale and sustainability, which are primarily operational, people and process integration related, as opposed to technical.

Our video consulting programmes encompass all aspects of service development and delivery, from clinical and operational design including accessibility, functionality, quality, and scalability, through to technical design and development.
