“Over the past three years these awards have vividly shown the way in which AHPs in Northern Ireland are helping to transform health and social care, demonstrating real impact and setting the highest standards. Let’s make this year the best so far.’‘    

Hazel Winning, AHP Lead Officer, Department of Health NI   


“Science drives transformation of the delivery of health and social care. Healthcare scientists play a key role in generating and implementing this evidence, supporting and in many cases directly delivering patient care. These awards provide a welcome opportunity to highlight  and celebrate the major and often underappreciated contribution which healthcare scientists make across the health and social care system.”

Professor Ian Young, Chief Scientific Advisor, Department of Health NI
