Double recognition for National Centre for Child Health Technology

Tuesday 16 August 2022

We are delighted to share that the proposed National Centre for Child Health Technology could be named Public Private Collaboration of the Year at two separate awards ceremonies later this year.

Both the 2022 EG Awards and Insider Yorkshire Property Industry Awards have nominated the National Centre for Child Health Technology (NCCHT) in the same category. The NCCHT is being delivered in partnership with Scarborough Group International (SGI), Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield City Council and part-funded by the Government’s Levelling Up Fund, and it is fantastic to see the strength of this collaboration being recognised.

If approved, the £26m flagship project will become a global first, supporting world-leading research and innovation in child health to be located at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

NIHR CYP MedTech Director, Professor Paul Dimitri, said: “We’re delighted that our plans for the centre are already receiving recognition from award panels, who are seeing the impact the centre can make for children and young people around the world. The National Centre for Child Health Technology is set to develop the most advanced therapies through digital and technology development for children and young people. It will play a central role in ensuring that we advance the way we develop sustainable and transformational healthcare and drive prevention for children to ensure the future is bright.”
