The awards recognise the achievements of individuals and teams working in the health and social care sector, this creativity and innovation positions Scotland at the forefront of the digital revolution in healthcare, improving the lives of people across the country.
Held in 2019 at the Waldorf Astoria in Edinburgh, with views of Edinburgh Castle, this was the perfect setting to celebrate all the great examples of success from across health and care.
Our Guest of Honour, Jeane Freeman, Cabinet Secretary for Health & Sport gave an uplifting opening speech that highlighted the incredible effort that health and care providers put in to provide the highest quality care, Jeane also presented the awards to our Digital Leader and Digital Impact winners.
Pennie Taylor, Health Journalist and Broadcaster expertly hosted the awards, creating a great atmosphere and building the tension before the awards were announced.
