Private care ‘Oscars’ held online

Doctors, their teams and their hospitals are celebrating following the announcement of the winners at the LaingBuisson Awards 2020 last month, which had been greatly delayed due to the pandemic.

Hundreds of sector-leading organisations gathered at a virtual event to reflect on the past year and shine a spotlight on the amazing work executed during the midst of a global pandemic. 

The awards ceremony was attended by hundreds of key decision-makers, chief executives and industry experts, where they celebrated their team, colleagues and associates in the field.

The 15th LaingBuisson Awards recognised 32 winners across seven categories: Social Care, Clinical Services, Innovators & Leaders, Investors & Finance, Property, Advisers and, most recently added, Outstanding Response to Covid. 

Winners of the 2020 award included the following:
