This year’s categories that are still open for nominations include:
Excellence in Healthcare Science Service
Collaborations and partnerships across industry, academia, research teams and the wider NHS services are critical for transforming services and improving outcomes and reducing costs. This category is focused on healthcare scientists who have undertaken ground-breaking translational scientific work and established strong collaborations for innovation in service to make a real difference in patient care.
Healthcare Science Rising Star
The calibre of individuals at the earlier stages of their careers in healthcare science has never been greater with training programmes continuing to attract some of the best and brightest into the NHS. This award celebrates those healthcare scientists in the early stages of their career who are already demonstrating how much healthcare science can bring to transforming care pathways and service development. Our judges are looking for individuals who are already performing highly in their given area and show signs of greater things to come. Credit will be given to those showing a clear vision and demonstrating the impact of their work.

The workforce, how we educate, train and use their skills in innovative ways are vital in ensuring that healthcare scientists are able to work at the highest level and play their vital role in healthcare, reach their potential and do the best by patients.
Excellence in Healthcare Science Research and Innovation
Innovation in Healthcare science services, delivery and the wider NHS are critical for transforming services, improving outcomes, and reducing costs. The category is focused on healthcare scientists who have undertaken ground-breaking translational scientific work and established strong collaborations for innovation and enterprise to make a real difference in patient care.
Healthcare Scientist of the Year
