The annual IHE Awards celebrate the innovation and excellent practice taking place in independent providers, recognising the quality and breadth of IHE member activity across nine different categories. The awards also recognise members’ outstanding contribution to the IHE community at both a provider and individual level.
This year, we received a record-breaking total of over 50 nominations across all categories. We would like to thank all members who entered this year, and once again congratulate all who were shortlisted.
Our winners were announced following the IHE Annual Conference 2023. You can read about the conference highlights here.
