Entries are now open for the 2018 HSJ Awards

HSJ Awards


We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2018 HSJ Awards - the standard for healthcare excellence. The Awards ceremony will take place on 21 November at the Intercontinental O2, London.

This year, in addition to celebrating a very special NHS anniversary, we are delighted to announce six new categories and a new judging stage. This will give entrants more opportunity to be recognised and rewarded for their outstanding contributions to UK healthcare.

"There will be plenty of celebration of the NHS's innovation during its 70th birthday – but none larger or more prestigious than the HSJ Awards. The HSJ Awards has grown to become the biggest celebration of healthcare excellence in the world because it has been adopted by the NHS as the most effective way to recognise, celebrate and spread its greatest successes. This year we have introduced a range of new categories – and retired some others – to make sure the Awards accurately reflect the challenges the NHS is facing.

I wish all our entrants good luck

HSJ Editor, Alistair McLellan
