Congratulations to all from Kent, Surrey and Sussex who have been shortlisted in the HSJ Awards 2020.

More than 15 organisations are featured across nine categories, showing the full depth and breadth of the amazing work taking place throughout the region.

We’re proud to have been part of the team working with Surrey Heartlands on Attend Anywhere, which is a finalist in the Digitising Patient Services Initiative.

Commenting on the awards Peter Carpenter, KSS AHSN’s Service Delivery Director, said:

“With so much attention rightly being devoted to the COVID-19 response, it’s sometimes hard to see the full scale of the wider work taking place in Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

“I’m thrilled to see so many organisations from across the region named as finalists in these awards, and I wish them all the best for the awards ceremony in March.”
