Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Wins NHS Wales Award

Aneurin Bevan University Health Board is celebrating today (Friday 21 October) after winning an award at the NHS Wales Awards 2022.

The ‘Bespoke Repatriation Service’, a project developed in partnership with United Welsh Housing Association won the Working Seamlessly Across the Public and Third Sector award.

The award was presented to the team behind the project at a ceremony attended by more than 280 NHS Wales staff in Cardiff last night.

Minister for Health and Social Services, Eluned Morgan, said:

“It is fantastic to see the NHS Wales Awards are back for 2022. They are a source of great pride for all the NHS staff who dedicate their lives to the needs and care of others. 

“The inspiring stories of dedication, duty and innovation in how we care for and improve the lives of others in such challenging times is an inspiration for us all and shines a light on the fantastic and dedicated staff we have working for the NHS in Wales.

 “I am supremely proud to be the Minister with responsibility for the NHS in Wales and I congratulate all those who are nominated and win awards and thank you for your service and being positive role models for the NHS and the people of Wales.”

We’d like to say a huge congratulations to all the team from the Bespoke Repatriation Service and to all our staff who were nominated and shortlisted for this prestigious event.

The NHS Wales Awards are organised by Improvement Cymru which is the national improvement service for NHS Wales delivered by Public Health Wales.

The awards returned this year following a two-year gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They were originally launched in 2008 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the NHS and recognise and promote good practice across Wales.

This year’s awards were sponsored by Life Sciences Hub Wales, C-Stem and Armis, Core to Cloud, Health and Care Research Wales and RCN Wales.

Entries were received from a range of organisations, showing the high standard of innovative and diverse work that has transformed the experience and outcomes for people in Wales.
