Now in its twelfth year the Awards celebrate the achievements of NHS employees throughout all sectors of the service in the North East who have risen to the challenge of telling us how, and where, they believe that improvements to the service provided to patients can be improved, either through a technical innovation or through better service delivery. For the first time we are also encouraging entries from regional SMEs making an impact on the healthcare market.

The categories for the Bright Ideas in Health Awards 2015 are as follows:

* Service Innovation
* Innovative Technology or Device
* CCG Innovation within Primary Care
* SME Innovation in Healthcare
* Patient and Public Involvement – Making Research Better, sponsored by CRN: North East and North Cumbria and AHSN NENC

As part of the Bright Ideas in Health Awards 2015 The Clinical Research Network; North East and North Cumbria are looking to hear from Researchers, Research staff including Research Nurses and members of the team, Clinicians and PhD and Masters Students about how Patient and Public Involvement has positively influenced their studies/evaluations.Entries are likely to include examples from clinical trials, student projects and service development and evaluation where patient and public involvement has made a significant impact to the study design and process.
