Judging Day

The BMJ Awards – Wednesday 22 April 2020

The 2020 BMJ Awards Judging Day, Awards Conference Programme and Awards Ceremony

At BMJ, we are keen that the Awards are both an event to celebrate the exceptional work taking place by teams across the UK, and also an opportunity to provide exposure and access to experts for inspirational projects to grow and develop. This year’s conference programme will be a chance to share successes and challenges with your peers as you explore ways in which you can scale and spread your project, led by our expert facilitators. It will also be a chance to hear from past winners and shortlisted teams on how they took their work to the next level and created real and lasting change for patients and their communities.
