No Award

Date posted: April 18, 2012

Truthfully, we’ve stopped entering awards at present. It seems relatively easy for us to get nominated in just about everything we enter. It’s impressive really, judges can immediately see the benefits of what we’re doing and we seem to sail through to the finals. In February we reached the finals of “The UK’s Most Innovative

Winner: Dadi Award

Date posted: November 14, 2011

Jo and myself were shellshocked on Friday when they announced we’d won the Dadi Award for Best Use of Mobile. We’d fought off competition from the likes of Tesco, Manchester City FC, Racing Post, and Waitrose.

Last night Florence won the award for Best Public Sector Project at the Big Chip Awards.

Date posted: October 8, 2010

This one just in from the West Midlands region. Our collaboration partner Stoke on Trent PCT has just won a regional Health and Social Care Awards, transforming community services category. This is amazing news, so early on in the project and our story is compelling enough to win awards.

Health Service Journal Award Nomination

Date posted: September 14, 2010

As a general rule we don’t strive to win awards, they’re generally a bit vain and unnecessary. But one thing you can’t escape is winning one (or even being nominated) certainly makes you feel good.
