Medipex NHS Innovation Awards and Showcase 2022
14th Oct 2022
On 12th October 2022, over a hundred delegates from the NHS, universities, companies and charities all came together online to celebrate the innovative achievements of our NHS colleagues from across the country. Highlights of the event included two keynote speeches, one from headline sponsor EEE Corp Group, with their CEO Negin Bemanzadeh talking about how to make an idea investable and take it global and the second from Sameer Kothari, CEO of Zilico Ltd. who inspired the audience with the story of ZedScan’s journey from an NHS workshop into clinical practice to diagnose cancer.
Following a series of engaging break-out sessions, hosted by some of our event supporters, on topics including breaking down barriers to NHS adoption, innovating for child health, medical device regulations, product development, pitching and business growth, the event moved on to a showcase our twenty NHS competition finalists. The range and quality of innovations entered for the awards was inspirational again this year and it is anticipated that many new collaborations, and opportunities for shared learning, will occur as a result of the event. Congratulations to our winners from Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Leeds & York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for their winning entries, and thank you to all of our entrants for taking part.
We would like to give special thanks to the judging panel, made up of experts from Medipex Ltd., Medovate Ltd, the Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network and, the NIHR Children and Young People Medtech Co-operative and the NIHR Surgical Medtech co-operative, who had a very challenging time in selecting the finalists from a pool of nearly 50 high-quality entries from 14 different organisations and their collaborators.
Medipex CEO Lindsay Georgopoulos says “Many congratulations to all of our finalists and of course our winners, who have provided much inspiration to our audience today. A special congratulations must go to our prize winners Professor Opinder Sahota from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with his innovation N-ICE Cream, an innovative approach to reduce malnourishment amongst vulnerable hospital patients, and to Dr Andy Smith and team at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust whose innovation AI segmentation of Cardiac MRI was particularly commended by the judges for the clear articulation of the need and benefits of their innovation.”
We would like to extend another thank you to our event supporters, awards entrants and everyone that came along to celebrate with us. Medipex are looking forward to engaging with all of the award entrants to see how we can help them move their project forwards and increase the impact of their innovation.
