Some of the award winners from the Patients' Choice Awards

The winners have been announced for the first ever Greater Manchester Cancer Awards.

Organised by the Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance, the awards honour the outstanding work being done across Greater Manchester to improve lives and treatment for people affected by cancer.

The Greater Manchester Cancer Awards honoured some of the amazing work going on in patient care, innovation, education and research across Greater Manchester.

A panel of judges – including patient representatives and staff working in cancer from across the city – whittled down around 60 entries to a final shortlist.

The awards were open to teams in NHS, research, voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE), and public health /local authority sectors. They recognise the collaborative approach our teams take in Greater Manchester to work across organisational boundaries to make things better for our patients.
