West Midlands businesses celebrate at Medilink WM Business Awards

14th February 2020

The awards recognise organisations in the life science sector who in the past year have excelled in different areas, including Start-up, Innovation, Delivering Innovation into Health and Care, Innovation and Outstanding Achievement.

Professor Martin Levermore MBE welcomed guests and offered words of encouragement and support to build on the strength of the West Midlands region.
