Interim Chief Executive, Glyn Jones, said, “I’m very proud of all the hard work our staff have carried out over the last year and I'm so pleased that they’re being recognised for their efforts through the NHS Wales Awards.

Congratulations to everyone who was nominated and shortlisted. We’re looking forward to the awards in October and we would like to wish all of those who have been shortlisted good luck!”


The Awards recognise how innovative ideas for change can make a significant difference to the patients who need care, the organisations who provide care, and the health and care system as a whole. It is an opportunity to showcase hardworking and inspiring teams working together, striving to improve healthcare practices and patient care across Wales. The winners will be announced at a ceremony on 10th October 2022.


With so many inspiring entries being submitted this year, the judging panel of NHS experts found it incredibly tough to shortlist the 24 finalists in the 8 award categories. The next stage is for the judging panels to virtually visit each finalist to find out more and see first-hand the benefits they’ve brought to patients.


The NHS Wales Awards are organised by Improvement Cymru which is the national improvement service for NHS Wales delivered by Public Health Wales. For a full list of finalists, please visit
