We’re excited to announce the winners of this year’s NHS Wales Awards, celebrating improvement work that has transformed the experience and outcomes for people in Wales.

This year we were thrilled to receive a record-breaking number of submissions detailing the incredible improvement work happening across our health and care system. After much deliberation, twenty four projects were selected as finalists and our winners were announced at an online ceremony earlier today.

We’re blessed with such a passionate and skilled workforce, and I’m inspired by you all. Thank you for what you do and how you do it. This is an excellent achievement of which you should be proud”.
