EIS Awards 2023 - NHS Awards Information

The NHS in London and South of England Supplier Awards is your opportunity to showcase the fantastic work you do as an NHS Trust. We’ve got a range of awards designed to celebrate your achievements. The templates are easy to complete and have been designed so that your entry can also be replicated for the HCSA awards held in the autumn. So two opportunities to win!

Over the years we have welcomed senior NHS Leads and Heads of Procurement for an evening full of opportunities for you to build relationships and network with current and potential clients across the region.

As an NHS Trust, you’ll know how hard your teams work to deliver best value for the taxpayer and to ensure good patient outcomes. This event is your opportunity to celebrate the amazing work of your staff at the Trust. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet with fellow colleagues from across the NHS, suppliers and other partners.

Together, let’s celebrate all the great work you and your team carry out daily to make our NHS the best. Whether you have a specific team member in mind or want to recognise a wider team, we’ve got some great awards to help shine a light on the people that really matter and who make our NHS what it is today.

This year we have again given trusts the opportunity to recognise the contribution of their Materials Management team, by continuing with this award category.


Don’t delay, request the forms now.

The DEADLINE for award entries is Friday 17th March 2023.
