The NHS Communicate Awards took place on the evening of Tuesday 11 October 2022 and was an opportunity to celebrate the brilliant work of individuals and teams working in NHS communications.
The second of these annual awards, this event focused on how communicators in the health sector have demonstrated extraordinary resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges, and how they have been at the forefront of efforts to support and guide colleagues, patients and communities through the pandemic.
The NHS Communicate Awards recognise the achievements of communicators across the NHS and celebrate innovation in the sector and will celebrate teams and individuals who have delivered highly effective communications, to support delivery at a local, regional and national level.
