About the Medical Futures Awards


A Medical Futures Innovation Award is one of the UK's most sought after healthcare and business accolades, rewarding ground-breaking innovation from front line clinicians and scientists.

The reward recognises ideas that have the potential to transform peoples' lives and demonstrate the NHS and UK's position as a worldwide contender. The Awards cover a number of therapy areas from Cardiovascular Disease to Respiratory Disease. A unique element of these Awards is the unparalleled peer review and credibility that is brought to exciting early stage innovation and technologies.

They are judged by a panel of the most distinguished doctors and business leaders in the country. Experts such as Sir Bruce Keogh, Medical Director for the NHS; and Business Icon, Sir Anthony Jolliffe, come together as Europe's leading think-tank on healthcare innovation.
