AWMGS scoops Innovation award at the Healthcare Science Awards
It is a huge honour and privilege to announce our Wales Infants and ChildreN's Genome Service, otherwise abbreivated to WINGS, has won the Viapath Award for Innovation in Healthcare Science.
The prestigious award was announced by Dr Dominic Harrington, Viapath CEO on May 21st during a live virtual ceremony (which you can watch here), where WINGS competed against 3 other shortlisted entrants in the final round of the competition.
This is a fantastic project, said the judges, which was potentially transformative in terms of patient pathways, with a clear impact on patient care. There were clear patient benefits but there were also benefits in developing the workforce and creating infrastructure to support innovation.
On hearing news of the announcement, Head of Laboratories Sian Morgan said:
We are so immensely proud of this achievement. It is a testament to the work of everyone involved and solidifies our ambition to be a pioneer of innovation and leading from the front within the healthcare science sector.
