This unique celebration of innovation with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) which was established last year was truly inspiring day and evening held at the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham. There were more than 100 entries submitted across 12 categories showing an outstanding range of innovations that can all potentially contribute to improve services, patient outcomes and have a positive economic impact on the NHS.

Green Cross Medico were shortlisted in the Industry Collaboration Category and we were delighted for our new innovation Airglove to be awarded “Highly Recommended” status. We know that Airglove will have a major impact on and benefit for patient care including a reduction in treatment time and consumable cost savings.

We will continue to work with WMAHSN and watch Airglove being adopted through the West Midlands region as it is an approved CE Medical Device and the first production units are now in the UK with further production planned.
