Testimonials

Those managing the awards did a great job in ensuring that everyone had a warm welcome to the event and were provided with all the information needed. The venue itself was perfect. Considering we were there as a shortlisted organisation for the Hospital Catering Award and are a catering team, we were all very impressed and satisfied with the quality of catering. The toastmaster (Reuben Lynch) was very impressive and Dr Phil Hammond was a very funny and informative speaker. I would recommend both being asked to return and host the 2018 awards" - Steve Wedgwood, Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

"The event was excellently managed, supportive, productive, entertaining and overall a huge success. The venue, meal and service too was fantastic! The BPA are pleased that with our decision to support the event, appreciate the recognition awarded to all those shortlisted and look forward to supporting the Health Business Awards again next year" - Yasmin Jefferies, British Parking Association

"We attended the HB Awards on 14th December at The Grange Hotel in London and found it to be a most enjoyable occasion, where we were privileged to meet many interesting people. The event was very well organised, in an attractive setting, and we look forward to the next" - Janet Bray, Garran Lockers Limited

"On both years, but 2017 particularly, we were able to meet prospective customers from NHS Trusts in a relaxed reception environment. Assistive Partner left the event with several good leads to follow up and I felt we achieved our PR objective, which was to gain profile as a core event sponsor and participant. The printed material and award handout was (as ever) very well produced and reflected the quality of the event, your publication and all of us involved" - Julian Cobbledick, Assistive Partner
