Suppliers working with the NHS in Lancashire are being given the opportunity to shine.

Applications are invited for the NHS in the North West Excellence in Supply Awards 2016 – recognising the work of businesses and third sector bodies who help the NHS to deliver great patient care.

Chairman of the event organisers NHS North West Procurement Development, Dr Liz Mear, said: “This awards event is a fantastic opportunity to throw the spotlight on the businesses and other non NHS organisations who often work behind the scenes and unknown to the patients, service users and families receiving health care.” To find out more, visit www.nwprocurement.co.uk. The deadline for nominations is July 1 and the awards event will be at the Village Hotel, Blackpool, on Thursday, October 20.
