“Our ambition is to enable a system that not only detects and treats illnesses, but one that also prevents poor health by tackling the root causes of ill health and puts people back in charge of their own health. The awards provide an exciting opportunity to highlight the excellent work going on to drive forward this approach in Norfolk and Waveney."
HWB chairman Bill Borrett
