BBH Awards 2023

We are delighted to announce that we have won the Best Communications System at the Building Better Healthcare Awards 2023.

Paul Bensley, Joint Managing Director of X-on Health collected the award on behalf of the team and said “We are delighted to have received this award, This award recognises the excellence of Surgery Connect and stands as a testament to our commitment to supporting the NHS drive to improve patient access with digital cloud telephony closely integrated with other forms of digital communication, putting an end to the 8am rush.”

About the Awards

The Building Better Healthcare Awards ceremony was held in central London, with 33 trophies handed out across 5 categories reflecting innovation within the healthcare sector.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, this year’s competition was judged by a 12-strong panel of industry leaders who presented awards across four key areas – estates and facilities management, building design, the patient environment, and technology.

Winners ranged from major new hospital developments, to small, but game-changing community-based facilities; and from technology to help patients self-manage their medical conditions, to impressive arts projects which are helping to humanise hospital environments.

Best Communications System

This award was designed to recognise a digital application that enhances communications within health and social care environments. This can include, but is not restricted to, nurse call systems, sensors and alarms, electronic wayfinding solutions, paging systems, digital appointment reminders, and telecoms systems.

Against such strong competition, we were thrilled to win the top award. It is deeply exciting to be part of a wave of innovation driving digital transformation across the NHS. Moments like this help shine a light on the great work happening across the industry and it is humbling to be a part of it.

We are looking forward to next year already!
