The Patients as Partners’ Awards were launched in 2015 by AbbVie as a way to recognise, celebrate and share exceptional examples of improvements and innovation that demonstrate clear benefit to the lives of patients. The deadline for entries is 31 August 2017.
One winner from each category will receive a bursary of up to £3,000 to spend on research to grow their own experience and share best practice that will benefit patients and/or the NHS. The awards are part of a wider sustainable healthcare programme delivered in partnership by AbbVie and the College of Medicine.
Categories for the Awards are as follows:
Supporting individuals to take control of their care
Enabling patients with technology
Making health and social care patient friendly
