At a time when success is not sufficiently celebrated, the Irish Healthcare Awards show the health service is delivering. The Awards have shown that the changes digital is making to health are being recognised. Health is a difficult place to work. The Irish Healthcare Awards give teams a chance to get recognition. We need to celebrate successful things.

It’s a great honour, I didn’t think I would win so I am thrilled, thank you

William Hutch, Winner Student Project of the Year

Winning the Award for 2016 has been fantastic. It acknowledges the tremendous efforts that my colleagues within the Saolta Group have invested in this project to review change and implement new services for women with diabetes before, during and after pregnancy. The Award also acknowledges the commitment of the Saolta CEO and management team to this service.
I hope the acknowledgement of the Irish Healthcare Award will enable me to attract new research funds to allow us to ask and find answers to questions that will improve outcomes even further.

Prof Fidelma Dunne Consultant Endocrinologist

We were delighted to win the Best Educational Project of the Year in 2016. The acknowledgement of the judging panel and our fellow colleagues in the wider Irish health service was very much appreciated by the members of the Medical Corps and the Defence Forces. We hope that the recognition will inspire our own medics to continue to implement similar health-related educational projects internationally, and more importantly to encourage doctors in Ireland to consider a very worthwhile career as a medical officer in the Defence Forces.

Dr Patrick Kelly Irish Defence Forces

I would highly recommend to any clinician that is involved in healthcare service delivery to strongly consider entering the Irish Healthcare Awards. The winning entries are chosen by an independent panel of expert judges. Therefore, when your project has been nominated for an award, or won a category award, fellow professionals believe your innovation is worthy of special recognition. Most importantly, for the patient that means better care. After a project has won a major award, such recognition assists clinicians in maintaining high quality healthcare, through improving the public perception of the work that we do. This improves staff morale and in turn attracts good quality staff, who want to work on the team.

Dr Damian Mohan Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist Clinical Senior Lecturer

It gives a certain recognition, that’s really important

Northdoc Medical Services Winner Innovative GP Project of the Year

We were honoured to win the Nursing Project award at the Irish Healthcare Awards. It not only helped to drive awareness of our new Mi Kidney app, it also gave the Renal Team at St James’s Hospital the personal recognition that we developed a product that can make a real difference to our patients.
