Unveiling the NR Times Awards winners

Here we reveal the 13 winners of the inaugural Awards, which celebrate excellence across the field of neuro-rehab



The winners of the inaugural NR Times Awards have been revealed, following a “phenomenal” response from individuals, organisations and teams across the world across the 13 categories. 

The award winners were revealed at an online ceremony held last week, following scores of submissions being received from around the globe and extensive shortlists being compiled.

Eleven categories of the awards were judged by an expert independent judging panel, with one being decided by public vote and a final category – Lifetime Contribution – being added later, based on the involvement of its winner in so many categories of the Awards.

The NR Times Awards – sponsored by Elysium Healthcare – were created to recognise and celebrate outstanding practice across the field of neuro-rehab, and to shine a light on the dedication and commitment from so many professionals in delivering truly life-changing outcomes for patients. 

The extensive shortlists were reflective of the very high quality of the submissions, and judges said the number and quality of entries received was “phenomenal”. 

The winners – as well as a number of highly commended and commended finalists – were revealed in the online awards ceremony, attended by all of the shortlisted entrants alongside the judges. 

Deborah Johnson, editor of NR Times, said: “Being able to share the stories of so many people and organisations in the world of neuro-rehab through writing for NR Times is a great privilege, and often my colleagues and I are left in awe by those we speak to. 

“The inspirational and amazing stories of dedication, selflessness, courage and achievement are too many to begin to recount – but that was the basis of the concept of the NR Times Awards; to shine a light on some of the amazing work and outstanding practice that makes such a difference to the lives and futures of so many survivors and whole families. 

“Our first-ever NR Times Awards has been absolutely fantastic, and that is due to the incredible response and levels of support we have had in creating such a success.

“Thank you to everyone who entered for their submissions; to our judges for spending so much time analysing the many entries and giving such thoughtful insight; and to our sponsors, without whom the NR Times Awards wouldn’t have been possible. 

“It was an absolute pleasure to announce our winners in the ceremony, and to acknowledge outstanding practice with ‘highly commended’ or ‘commended’ commendations, and we are very pleased to announce them more widely here. 

“Congratulations to everyone who won and was shortlisted – your work is truly helping to change lives and give hope, and that is something beyond any measure.”

Elysium Healthcare said they are “delighted” to sponsor the inaugural NR Times Awards, adding: “The publication has been a fabulous platform for a wide range of neurological content, leading edge analysis and bringing human stories to life to give others hope for the future.”
