Now in its 12th year, the annual NHS Wales Awards celebrate the work of organisations and teams across Wales who have shown innovation in transforming the quality and safety of patient care. The winners will be announced in a ceremony on 19 September 2019.
The judging panel of NHS experts had the tough task of selecting the 24 finalists in the 8 award categories. The next stage is for the judging panels to visit each finalist to find out more and see first-hand the benefits they’ve brought to patients.
