‘Big Ideas for Better Health’ Awards

Can you help to find the ideas making a remarkable impact for patients so that we can celebrate those behind the service and champion their work across the NHS? AbbVie’s ‘Big Ideas for Better Health’ Awards are free to enter and open to all UK NHS organisations and patient groups. Winners will receive a grant for £3,000 to extend their project or take it to the next level.
 
The ‘Big Ideas’ programme is now open for entries – the deadline for this year’s submissions is 10 August 2018. Do you know anyone that would be interested in entering? Find out more about the awards and how people can enter on the website.
 
The ‘Big Ideas’ Awards were originally launched in 2015 as a way to recognise, celebrate and share exceptional examples of improvements and innovation that demonstrate clear benefit to the lives of patients. The programme forms part of AbbVie’s Sustainable Healthcare initiative and this year has been refreshed with a new name (previously Patients as Partners) and new categories:
·         Delivering care closer to home
·         Supporting self-management and self-care
·         Driving prevention and early intervention
 
Previous winners come from across the UK and their programmes show not all heroes wear capes. Every day, ordinary people are saving money for the NHS and improving the lives of patients. Help us to help these amazing people and their efforts to create a more Sustainable Healthcare system. You can watch a video of last year’s winners on AbbVie’s YouTube channel.
