Association for Project Management (APM) is delighted to announce the winners of the APM Project Management Awards 2019, sponsored by RPC UK Limited.
The prestigious awards ceremony took place at Old Billingsgate, London, and saw the best of the project management profession come together to celebrate and recognise their success. The event was hosted by APM’s new president Sue Kershaw, Managing Director, KPMG Infrastructure Advisory Group.
A total of 19 awards were handed out across a wide range of categories, including two new awards: The Innovation in Projects Award and the Contribution to the Profession Award (which consists of three sub categories – Company, Consultancy and Not-for-Profit/Charity).
Debbie Dore, chief executive of APM said: “This year we received a record number of entries, and the standard is getting higher each year. The award winners are a true reflection of the talent within the project profession and how much it has grown in recent years. I would like to congratulate the winners and finalists from each of the categories for their incredible achievements.”
The Overall Project of the Year Award, sponsored by Hyde Park Solutions, went to North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust & Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, for its new maternity information system – BadgerNet electronic personal health records (ePHR). The new system has replaced outdated processes at the Trust, and the new electrical records mean that women registering their pregnancy in Cumbria are now some of the first in the country to have access to electronic maternity notes – all via an app on which they can track their pregnancy journey.
