DRWF awarded a prestigious national award for excellence in the diabetes industry at the inaugural Diabetes Professional Care awards ceremony.
DRWF has been named Charity of the Year at the inaugural Industry Awards launched by Diabetes Professional Care.
The awards ceremony took place on World Diabetes Day after the first day of the Diabetes Professional Care conference at Olympia London on 14th November.
Diabetes Professional Care is a conference for healthcare professionals involved in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes and its related conditions.
The awards, held in association with The Diabetes Times, showcased success and innovation across the industry including pharmaceutical, medical device and life sciences industries working in diabetes care.
DPC founder Maggie Meer said: “Congratulations to DRWF, the award is testament to their hard work, dedication, innovation and, more importantly, the life-changing difference they are making to people with diabetes.
“We launched the awards to recognise the crucial role played by industry in developing and providing products, services and research that enable people with diabetes to have better outcomes.”
Oliver Jelley, Editor of The Diabetes Times, said: “These awards are about celebrating the achievements, standards of excellence and commitment to quality and positive outcomes of the companies working in diabetes care. We were proud to be part of this positive initiative and congratulate DRWF for going above and beyond to improve diabetes care.”
Entries into the 14 categories were judged independently by leading professionals from the diabetes community, including Dr Dinesh Nagi, Chair of the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists (ABCD) and Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology; Abigail Kitt, Quality Improvement Lead (Diabetes), NHS England – South East Clinical Networks; and Sarah Tutton, Chief Executive, DRWF.
