Winners on the night included start-ups such as Galway’s SymPhysis Medical, SMEs such as Northern Ireland’s Clonallon Laboratories, and individuals such as Kevin Carroll, who picked up the award for outstanding professional within healthcare.

“This year’s winning initiatives and individuals exemplified the best of the best and what it is to bring positive impact to patients and the healthcare system, through not only state-of-the-art medical health technologies but also the transformation and culture changes required to do it,” said Treacy.
