The Ask About Medicines Awards for Excellence

The Ask About Medicines Awards for Excellence were launched in 2006 and were designed to recognise excellence in:

  • increasing people's understanding about medicines and medicine taking 
  • helping medicine users to be involved in decisions about their treatment
  • achieving better communication between people and their healthcare professionals

Developed in partnership with the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, over 200 individuals and organisations involved in providing and delivering medicines information entered the awards over the three years the scheme was running. And 20 individuals won an Award recognising their excellent contribution to medicines information.

These winners showcased a wide range of excellent initiatives across the UK, all designed to encourage better communication between patients and their health professionals, and to improve the depth and quality of medicines information.
