The Scottish Health Awards are the most prestigious and recognised awards for those working across NHS Scotland and its partners to deliver high quality health and social care services to the people of Scotland. The awards are now well established in the Scottish calendar and recognise those that go that extra mile to improve the health and wellbeing of others.
Scottish Health Awards 2021 – Finalists Announced!
Congratulations to all of this year’s finalists and winners. The 20th Scottish Health Awards took place in person for the first time since 2019. The ceremony, which took place at the O2 Academy in Edinburgh, was filled with celebration and the winners were delighted to collect their awards from Humza Yousaf, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care.
The judges found it extremely difficult to select the winners from such strong nominations and incredible stories – each demonstrating outstanding achievements from the individuals and teams who have worked so hard during such challenging times.
