The black-tie event began in style with a pre-dinner champagne reception, and guests were treated to a sumptuous four-course meal. Enigmatic host, Armando Iannucci, took to the stage to keep the crowds entertained throughout the evening. Armando is an award-winning comedian, writer, director, performer and radio producer, whose creations include the popular BBC Four series, ‘The Thick of It’.
The HealthInvestor Awards are renowned for showcasing excellence and innovation in the healthcare sector. The panel of high-level judges was headed up by Lord Ara Darzi, from whom Bedfont was delighted to accept a coveted award at the Arab Health Awards in February 2010. This time, it was unfortunately not meant to be, but reaching the final cut has reinforced Bedfont’s position as a market leader in their field.
The evening was rounded off with a casino, with proceeds going to worthy charities, The Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign and Save the Children. The final total has yet to be confirmed, but it is hoped that the casino raised around £25,000.
Managing Director, Trevor Smith, said: “The HealthInvestor Awards are a highlight of the healthcare calendar and we are delighted to have made it to the final stage. The competition was at a higher level than ever this year and our congratulations go to the winners, Ascribe. I am very proud of everyone at Bedfont for what we have achieved.”
