Prestigious awards to be presented to medical experts


Excitement is building for the annual Medilink WM Medical & Healthcare Business Awards, which brings together clinicians and researchers as well as business representatives and academics from across the region’s medical and healthcare technology sector.

The event takes place at the Burlington Hotel in Birmingham on February 13 and we are delighted to be among the sponsors.

Presenting the award for Innovation will be Dr Jagvir Purewal from our Birmingham office, who spoke about how thrilled we are to be renewing our membership with Medilink for a second year.

“The awards are an amazing night because you hear about all the fantastic work that is being done by the region’s medical and healthcare community,” said Dr Purewal. “It is wonderful to see so many people coming together to celebrate the achievements of this sector, as they showcase the best new innovations coming out of the West Midlands.

“We’re proud to be sponsoring this award, which gives us a chance to hear about the incredible drive and imagination that adds not only to economic prosperity in the region, but also improves health. At Forresters, we work with people to help them protect their amazing ideas and inventions, and we look forward to celebrating with even more people that are leading the way in this sector.”

The evening offers guests the chance to celebrate the outstanding business achievements, international successes and innovative breakthroughs that have been made across the life sciences and healthcare technology sectors in the last year.

Once the winners of the West Midlands awards are announced they will be included in the esteemed list of finalists for the UK grand final at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole on April 1. The highly respected Medilink UK Healthcare Business Awards 2020, in association with Med-Tech Innovation, will see the very best of the UK’s Life Sciences and Healthcare Technology sector being crowned as national winners.

Joanne Mewis from Medilink West Midlands said: “Our prestigious Medilink WM Healthcare Business Awards will see industry, academia and the NHS come together to toast the achievements of the health sector organisations across the West Midlands. We are incredibly proud to have Forresters kindly sponsor our Innovation award – for the development of innovative technology, design and processes that have produced a major improvement in business performance.”
