University of Bolton backs new £10,000 healthcare award
A HEALTH charity could soon be £10,000 richer thanks to a prize from the University of Bolton.
Now in its eighth year, the SheInspires Awards will have a new category this year to honor women in medical and health services.
This will be open to professionals from all areas of healthcare, including nursing, general medicine, surgery and ambulance service, and the winner will receive the cash prize for a charity of their choice. .
Awards organizer Gulnaz Brennan said: “This is a wonderful opportunity not only to showcase individuals, but also for health charities in Bolton and the North West to take advantage of the great generosity of the university.
“They could receive this very useful sum possibly via someone who is already advocating for them. We therefore urge all health charities to encourage their professional supporters to participate in the awards to give them a chance to receive this important cash boost.
Professor George Holmes, the university’s vice-chancellor, said: “The pandemic has demonstrated the incredible value of everyone working in the UK healthcare sector.
“When it comes to medical care, these professionals are totally dedicated and they go into this type of career to help others.
“The university is proud to present a prize of £10,000 to the winner of the next category of the 2022 SheInspires Awards for Health and Medical Services. This will allow the outstanding category winner to donate the money to a health charity of their choice.
He added: “With its new postgraduate medical school, the University is committed to supporting the healthcare sector at a time when it has never been more important to recruit high caliber healthcare professionals to across the UK.
“This pioneering collaboration between the university and the Bolton NHS Foundation Trust will bring sustainable jobs and prosperity to the community.”
The university is already participating in the joint venture to create a groundbreaking Bolton College of Medical Science.
It is partnering with Bolton Council, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and Bolton College for the new state-of-the-art vocational and vocational training centre, based at the Royal Bolton Hospital.
