Only 6 days to go to apply for the 2017 CSO Healthcare Science Awards

Please Note: Entries can be self-nominated or nominated by colleagues.

The awards, now in their 11th year, feature some new categories which stand alongside our prestigious Healthcare Scientist of the Year award and Healthcare Science Rising Stars. 

Together, with our sponsors, we want to capture and celebrate the diversity of contributions healthcare science makes to the NHS and patient care; whether this be through leadership, clinical research, technological innovation or communicating science to the public. 

The award categories this year are:
  • Healthcare Scientist of the Year Award
  • Healthcare Science Rising Stars
  • Healthcare Science Partnering Patients and Citizens Award
  • Science and Engineering Engagement Award
  • CSO Shirley Fletcher Apprenticeship Award
  • CSO Equality and Diversity Leadership Award
  • Science in Health Research Award
  • Science Driving Innovation in Healthcare Delivery Award

Professor Sue Hill OBE, Chief Scientific Officer for NHS England explains how “the CSO Healthcare Science Awards showcase the crucial contribution that science makes to the NHS and public health to ensure high quality care for all, now and for future generations.” 

“We have built on the success of last year’s awards to develop all-inclusive categories that will demonstrate the breadth and depth of talent across science in health.”
Please find attached more information on the award categories, criteria and details on how to apply, or visit our award website.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Monday 30 January 2017. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview on Thursday 16 February 2017 and the winners will be announced at our awards ceremony on the evening of 6 March 2017 as part of the Chief Scientific Officer’s Annual Conference.
