Medela wins BBH Award

Medela Healthcare has won the Building Better Healthcare (BBH) awards in the ‘Best Product to Improve Patient Pathway’ category.

The BBH awards are the biggest and most reputable awards in the UK Healthcare industry, recognising, rewarding and celebrating best practice in healthcare. The awards reflect the need for healthcare spaces to be built and equipped in ways which aid recovery and recuperation and rewards projects and products which help to achieve this.

Medela Healthcare won the awards with the following motivation:

‘Thopaz is an entrepreneurial innovation which has come up with a solution that is about improving the patient process.’

Mark Cregan, Director of Medical Relations and Evidence-based Marketing at Medela Healthcare spoke following the award presentation:

‘Competition was tough, but we are really proud to have won this award. Improving patient pathway is exactly what Thopaz is designed to do and it is nice to have been recognised as an industry leader in this field. Thopaz is a relatively new product on the market but has already been proven to provide a whole new level of care and dignity to patients while at the same time saving the health system money.

The awards were judged by a panel consisting of GP representatives and NHS Trust members as well as patient associations.

The event, which has seen a steady increase of entries and attendees year on year, was attended by hundreds of people comprising industry leaders and NHS professionals.
