Clinical Excellence Award

Introducing the Bladder & Bowel UK Clinical Excellence Award 

The Bladder & Bowel UK Clinical Excellence Award is a celebration of outstanding bladder and/or bowel health care. The award rewards the exceptional contribution of an individual, team or project working in the field of bladder and/or bowel health within the NHS or independent sector, by celebrating the demonstrable positive impact they have made to their patients or clients or to the public.  

Entrants may have used leadership, collaboration, innovation and/or novel approaches to engagement to improve access to care, health outcomes or quality of life for the public generally or to service users and their families. 

The Bladder & Bowel UK Clinical Excellence Award will be a platform for honouring success and sharing outstanding practice. The award will be judged by experts and clinicians who specialise in bladder and/or bowel care. We are delighted that the panel will be led by June Rogers MBE, and includes fellow judges Dr Catriona Morrison, Prof Doreen McClurg, and Karen Logan OBE.
