Advancing Healthcare Awards Wales 2019

Members of our management team attended the Welsh Government’s inaugural conference for allied health professionals, healthcare scientists and pharmacists, as well as the Advancing Healthcare Awards Wales dinner ceremony on 26th November 2019.

It was a very interesting and enjoyable event networking with members of the healthcare community.

Our director, Annette Thomas, had the lovely surprise of being presented with the Welsh Government lifetime achievement award in healthcare science. This was not only in recognition for her fantastic work as Weqas Director and as Cardiff and Vale UHB Clinical Lead for POCT, but also the work she has done abroad in developing countries. Congratulations Annette, we are all very proud of your achievements.

“Thanks everyone for all the wonderful comments I’ve had over the last few days since my award on Tuesday night. I’ve been in complete shock since it was announced. I had no idea!! Thanks to all the amazing people I’ve worked with over the years especially the Wales PoCT Network and the staff at Weqas, I wouldn’t have achieved anything without your hard work, fantastic support and believing in me even when some of my ideas were a bit scary.”
