A member of Central Manchester and Manchester Children's University Hospitals NHS Trust has won the top accolade at the National Innovation Awards. The ceremony, held at the Magic Circle in London on 3rd December, saw her beat off stiff competition from Trusts across the country to earn first prize.
Having come second in the regional North West NHS Innovation Awards organised by TrusTECH®, Caroline Corless, Clinical Scientist at the Trust, scooped the prize in the Diagnostics and Therapeutics category at the National Awards with her Improved Method for Respiratory Virus Detection.
She picked up a winning cheque of £4000 on behalf of the Trust, with Tamsin Crothers and Lynn John from Ashton, Leigh & Wigan Primary Care Trust picking up a cheque of £2000 for coming second in their category.
Both entries were put forward for the National Awards which were held at the Magic Circle in London, by TrusTECH® - the North West NHS Innovation Hub.
Dr Richard Deed, Innovation Unit Manager of TrusTECH® commented: “We know that we have some of the UK’s best innovators here in the region and the results at the National Innovation Awards yesterday have confirmed this.”
