Health Business 21.06

Recognising those who are transforming the NHS

In this issue of Health Business we not only share the winners of the 2021 Health Business Awards, but we also detail our first HB Top 50 NHS Professionals list.

The Top 50 list is our pick of the people that have had the greatest impact on the health system in England over the last few years. Please do take time to read the list, which begins on page 34, and join me in congratulating those who continue to work under the banner of our wonderful National Health Service.

A special congratulations also to those who were recipients of Health Business Awards on 9 December. Whether it was in recognition for a new hospital building, a mental health initiative or an inspiring response to the coronavirus pandemic, our winners fully deserve their accolades.

Aside from our winners and Top 50 listing, we have some very worthwhile reading in this last issue of the year, with the HFMA writing on financial stability (page 18), NHS Property Services on a net zero NHS estate (page 25) and NHS Digital on digital services during the pandemic (page 41).

Enjoy the issue, have a wonderful festive period and a safe start to the New Year.
