Celebrating our health heroes across Medway

Our A Better Medway Awards celebrate our shining stars and success stories in the public health sector.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has created huge challenges for many of our health services.

Our staff and partners worked together to help combat the spread of the virus to protect our communities. It really has been a time like no other.

There are many individuals, community initiatives and health services that help improve Medway’s public health.

This year’s health awards celebrate those people and services who go above and beyond to help improve the health and wellbeing of Medway residents.

A Better Medway Awards 2019

The first awards took place in 2019 (we were unable to hold the event last year due to the pandemic).

It saw over 150 health professionals at the University of Greenwich’s Medway campus.

Among the many winners were:

  • The Blue Light Project, who received the Shaping Medway Health Award. The multi-agency project supports some of Medway’s most vulnerable residents who face homelessness.
  • wHoo Cares, received the Outstanding Contribution to Mental Health Award. The charity supports vulnerable members of the community on the peninsula and is working to combat social isolation.
