On Thursday 10th November, over 400 guests gathered in London to celebrate the best in healthcare buildings, products and Estates and Facilities Management. Now in its 13th year, the BBH Awards highlights and helps to spread best practice in healthcare building design, by recognising and celebrating all the best achievers from across the field. It is the biggest healthcare building design event of the year.

Two awards were given to a primary and community care building developed and funded by the Department of Health's Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) initiative, which provides clean, modern, purpose-built premises for health and local authority services in England. Under the initiative.
