Before we dive headlong into 2019, we’d like to take a moment to look back at one of our highlights of the year we’ve just left behind. Back in the first half of 2018, we learned that the Scoliosis SOS Clinic had won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade – this honour was a terrific testament to the passion and commitment that our staff demonstrate every single day.
About the Awards
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise were founded in 1966 and have since developed into their current format, which is made up of four award categories. Her Majesty the Queen chooses the winners of the awards on the advice of the Prime Minister, who is assisted by a committee made up of government figures, union representatives, and other people from a variety of industries and trades. Winners are announced annually on 21 April (the Queen’s birthday).
The awards are given to businesses for outstanding achievement in International Trade, Sustainable Development, Innovation, and Promoting Opportunity, to recognise organisations that promote social mobility. Previous winners include Dyson, Oxford Instruments and JCB.
Winning this award would not have been possible without all of our patients from all over the world. In 2018 alone, patients travelled from 72 different countries to receive treatment for their spines at our clinic. We’d like to thank every single one of you for your trust and enthusiasm – this award is for you.
We will strive to continue providing the best support and assistance possible to all of our patients in the New Year. Click the link below to view the full list of 2018 Queen’s Award winners.
