Adam Hutchison Vice Chair of Kent Integrated Care Alliance (KICA) commented:
“Many national awards take place in various industries but always look at the businesses and their owners, these awards in Kent focus on the specific county and the frontline staff that deliver outstanding care in Kent & Medway and that is what should be celebrated, it’s great that 2nd year round we have had nearly 200 nominations for individuals and over 320 people attending the awards itself.”
