The LaingBuisson Award winners


Celebrating the inspiring

Nearly 1,000 guests celebrated the best in private health and social care at the ‘medical oscars’ – the 16th LaingBuisson Awards. 

Held in the spectacular ballroom of the London’s Park Plaza West­minster Bridge, the event was hosted by comedian Tom Allen, who entertained before handing out gongs with the hosts’ non-executive director Stephen Dorrell.

This was the first in-person awards celebration for two years and finalists were chosen by an independent panel of judges from a record 490 nominations.

LaingBuisson founder and executive chairman William Laing said the awards offered providers and advisers the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the most inspiring and innovative work in the independent sector. 

He added: ‘The nominations were hugely impressive and included many deserving projects, organisations and professionals who are dedicated to tremendous health and care causes, and I know that the judges’ decisions were not easy ones. We are delighted with the awards’ continued success and congratulate all our finalists and winners.’
