REACH Awards 2023

Our REACH Staff Awards are one of our most popular events. Running since 2015, the event has grown each year in terms of nominations received, breadth of awards and quality of the event.

We hosted the 2023 awards in a new venue for the event, welcoming everyone to the Ballroom at Keele Hall on 15 November 2023. 

For those not able to attend in person, the whole event was broadcast live, which can be watched below. Viewers could also choose whether to watch the livestream in a virtual reality experience, so they could enjoy the best seat in the house.

We were delighted to be presenting REACH in partnership with our main event sponsor, Interclass. We were also grateful for award sponsorship from the following organisations:

  • CACI
  • Dedalus
  • IT Works Health
  • Port Vale FC
  • Stoke City FC
  • Town Hospitals Ltd
  • Unison

As part of the ceremony, we unveiled the following film celebrating the outstanding partnership between Combined Healthcare and Interclass, which is delivering fantastic new facilities at our Harplands Hospital through Project Chrysalis.
