In February, ASPH were delighted to win the award for "Best Finance Tool" and to be highly commended twice in the "Best Contribution to Commercial Research" category.
One award was given to the Trust as a whole for having consistently high levels of research engagement and the other to recognise the contribution of Dr. Monica Nordstrom for her work on two commercial respiratory studies on Asthma.
In 2017/18 more people than ever across Kent, Surrey and Sussex became involved with health research. Over 36,000 patients and healthy volunteers were given access to new and better treatments by being recruited into clinical research studies within our local NHS organisations.
Chief Executive Suzanne Rankin said: “We are thrilled to have been recognised with these awards and I would like to congratulate all the winners and nominees. Clinical research is critical to the development of new treatments and approaches and continuously improving the quality and effectiveness of care we give. Regions like Kent, Surrey and Sussex have much to offer researchers, industry and innovators and it’s fantastic to see members of the team making such great strides forward and involving patients in contributing to transformational improvements in NHS treatments for everyone. My thanks and admiration go to all those involved.”
