Finalists Shortlisted for Medilink UK Business Awards

The national Medilink UK Healthcare Business Awards 2021 shortlist has been revealed, with some of the most innovative life sciences organisations in UK making the final list. The awards look back over the last 12 months and provide a platform for life science organisations to showcase their achievements.

Over 30 companies from across the life sciences sector will come together on Friday, October 1 and five of them will be crowned national winners.

In normal circumstances the sector has come together at a celebratory dinner which for the last few years has been held in association with Med-Tech Innovation. However, this year the awards will be held as a virtual event.

The Headline Sponsor for the Medilink UK Healthcare Business Awards 2021 is Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd supplies first affordable healthcare products to the developing world. The company supplies medicines, medical products and equipment at a price that brings international standards of healthcare within reach of the developing nations.

Each year, each of the Medilink organisations across the network hold their own awards that identify regional winners, which are then put forward for the Medilink UK national awards. This regional to national awards approach ensures we can identify the best of the best from across the UK.
