The 13th LaingBuisson Awards took place Thursday 15 November


More than 1,000 people were present at the annual awards ceremony which celebrates the best in health and social care . Held in the spectacular ballroom at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, the event was hosted by actor and writer, Alexander Armstrong, who entertained the guests before presenting the Awards with LaingBuisson Chairman, Stephen Dorrell.

LaingBuisson’s biggest event yet, the finalists were chosen by an independent panel of judges from over 350 nominations.

Henry Elphick, CEO of LaingBuisson, said:

“The LaingBuisson Awards offer providers and advisors the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the most inspiring and innovative work across healthcare and social care in the independent sector. 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.

“We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the judges for their time and for sharing their expertise with us, our charity partner, Age UK, and all our other sponsors, nominators and everyone else who contributed to the success of this event.”
