The results are in for this year's Worcestershire Health and Social Care Awards 2023.

The award ceremony was held tonight (Thursday, September 14) at The Abbey Hotel in Malvern, and 12 awards were given out to some of the most dedicated and hard-working people in the health and social care industry. 

Regional editor Stephanie Preece said: "It has been a fantastic evening and an honour to share the stories of so many who have worked tirelessly in the health and social care sector for us and our loved ones.

"Although there are only 12 winners tonight, every finalist should be immensely proud of their hard work and are still winners.

"I would like to thank our sponsors for the night, particularly the University of Worcester."
