Finalists revealed in the inaugural NR Times Awards, with awards ceremony set for next week



Six organisations have been named finalists in the Remote Rehab Initiative category of the NR Times Awards. 

The shortlist was chosen on the strength of their nominations, all of which demonstrated a clear commitment to securing the best possible outcomes for patients through harnessing the power of technology and innovation. 

The finalists are: 

Children’s Trust 

Enable Therapy Services



Lusio Rehab


The NR Times Awards, held for the first time this year and sponsored by Elysium Healthcare, have received scores of entries across 12 categories, all of which highlight and celebrate the dedication and innovation seen by individuals, teams and organisations working across the field of neuro-rehab.

The Remote Rehab Initiative category was created to highlight the outstanding commitment of therapists and healthcare professionals in delivering care and support remotely, creating a new generation of therapies and interventions which can be delivered without a patient having to leave their own home. 

It is sponsored by Think Therapy 1st, a fast-growing national provider of Specialist Rehabilitation Occupational Therapy for clients of all ages, injuries and levels resulting from personal injury or clinical negligence.

Its unique approach to functional rehabilitation is enabling clients across the country to secure outcomes far beyond expectations, and is a keen adopter of remote rehab techniques. 

Steph Fleet, head of service development and customer relationships at Think Therapy 1st, says: “As a team situated throughout the UK, we operate remotely with each other and have devised innovative methods to meet our clients’ needs, such as delivering remote neuro-rehab focused on activity.

“We are looking to find other rehabilitation providers and practitioners who excel in providing exceptional remote neuro-rehab.”

Following the shortlisting process, judging is now underway. 

Each category will be judged by its individual sponsor, plus a panel of independent judges – although any with a conflict of interest in a category will be exempt: 

  • John Davis, renowned neurotrauma specialist and consultant principal lawyer at Slater and Gordon
  • Vicki Gilman, chair of BABICM and founder of Social Return
  • Luke Griggs, chief executive of Headway
  • Chloe Hayward, chief executive of UKABIF

The winners will be revealed in our online NR Times Awards ceremony on October 26. 

In addition to the eleven categories which are judged by our panel, the Rehab Leader of the Year Award is decided by public vote, with scores of votes already being cast for our finalists.
