Innovation and Service Development Award 2018

Last year’s winner was the Diabetes Department from St Luke’s General Hospital, Kilkenny. Psychotherapist Adrienne O’Shea said: “We are privileged and honoured to win this award. To be even recognised within the medical faculty is huge for the discipline.”


This award will be presented to a practising hospital consultant, pharmacist, specialist and/or team working within any hospital department in recognition of a project which could easily be accomplished regardless of hospital size or staff, which need not be sophisticated, and which serves a useful purpose or has recently been published.

Judges will be looking for:

  • Significant innovation in practice, method or service directly or indirectly resulting in improved service care
  • Examples of the immediate and longer term impact the innovation has on the hospital sector
  • Examples of how the innovation may establish a vision or be the basis of a larger system or platform of innovations
  • Demonstration of how the innovation might be an inspiration to future hospital professionals and departments

Who can enter:

This category is open to all hospital professional/teams working within any hospital department in Ireland. Applications can be through nominating an individual or yourself.

Each submission will be judged by an independent judging panel.

All entries will be handled in the strictest confidence and will not be made available to any party not involved with judging the awards. If your entry is shortlisted, the awards organisers may wish to reproduce a summary of your entry, photographs and any other supporting materials in the finalists’ booklet or within other materials they produce to promote the awards including all press materials.

Deadline: April 30, 2018
