Business representatives, clinicians and researchers from the region’s medical and healthcare technology sectors gathered in Birmingham on Thursday 8th January 2015 to discover which of them had won one of a clutch of prestigious awards. The annual Medilink WM Medical and Healthcare Business Awards is the premier event in the region’s healthcare technology calendar, bringing together leading organisations from across the sector.
The awards dinner was held at Bank, a chic bar and restaurant situated within the cosmopolitan surroundings of Brindley Place, Birmingham, bringing together companies, clinicians and academics to hear the announcement of the winning organisations and to enjoy an evening of networking. The evening started with a twist … of lime … and a rather lively mixology masterclass, before guests were seated for the awards dinner and ceremony.
The West Midlands life sciences and healthcare sector’s expertise and influence have led to the region emerging as an international centre of excellence, this was evident with some of the region’s most innovative and successful medical and healthcare companies claiming a ‘gong’ and indeed all the finalists and winners showed their commitment to supporting product and service development which was exemplified by their continuous product and process innovation.
Joanne Mewis, Services and Membership Manager at Medilink West Midlands, said: “In the West Midlands we have strong regional networks of collaboration and that was reflected with the mix of business representatives, clinicians and researchers from the region’s medical and healthcare technology sectors. The evening was a great success and we’re proud of not only our winners, but all of our finalists whose limitless drive, imagination and achievements were celebrated in recognition of the impact that they have made to the medical and healthcare sector in the West Midlands, helping to drive up economic prosperity, as well as improve health.
