Now in its eighth year, the 2018 FHT Excellence Awards will once again recognise those setting the bar in complementary, sports and beauty therapy.
In addition to our own awards, we are delighted to announce that we will also be supporting the new Complementary Therapy Awards launching in April this year, to help advance the integrated healthcare agenda.
The Complementary Therapy Awards has been organised by Chamberlain Dunn, following on from the success of their long-established Advancing Healthcare Awards, which brings together 60 specialisms across the allied health professions and healthcare science. Award winners themselves, Chamberlain Dunn also works with the Healthcare People Management Association, which represents human resource professionals in UK healthcare, and for ten years organised the most comprehensive medical careers fair in conjunction with the British Medical Journal (BMJ).
FHT’s Executive Director, Jane Long, says: ‘I am thrilled that the FHT is supporting the Complementary Therapy Awards. Alongside our own FHT Excellence Awards, these new awards will bring further recognition to best practice in our industry, by highlighting how complementary therapists are successfully working alongside or supporting statutory regulated health and care professionals to enhance patient-centred care and improve treatment outcomes.
As the programme is being run by Chamberlain Dunn, it will also offer independent validation to the work of those therapists and healthcare projects that are showcased. Furthermore, by sponsoring the awards, the FHT has a unique opportunity to network with key influencers working in the healthcare sector, raising awareness about our professional members and the FHT’s Accredited Register.’
Entries for the FHT Excellence Awards and Complementary Therapy Awards will open in April – look out for future announcements on our website, in your monthly FHT newsletters and International Therapist magazine.
