The Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) has been recognised for “outstanding contributions to improving the UK’s health and wellbeing” at a national awards event in London.
PCP was one of only 20 organisations, out of 420, shortlisted for a GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Kings Fund Impact Award.
The GSK IMPACT Awards, run in partnership with The King’s Fund, are seen as a mark of achievement in the not-for-profit sector, and were held at the Science Museum in London.
PCP Chief Executive Carol Gaskarth, pictured with Senior Programme Manager Lynsey Todd and one of the judges, broadcast journalist Fiona Phillips, said they’re very proud.
