DHU Health Care have been announced as finalists in two categories of the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Awards.
The shortlisted finalists were announced at the East Midlands Chamber President’s Awards selection on the 27th of June at Makeney Hall.
The East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, which is the second largest chamber in the country, began the ceremony with a talk from President Kevin Harris and Chief Executive Scott Knowles. He spoke positively about what business have achieved in the East Midlands, focusing particularly on how businesses are now taking a more active approach to supporting local community projects.
This was the first time DHU Health Care had entered the awards and there was tough competition from around 250 businesses in the East Midlands (up 25% from the year before). Nevertheless, DHU Health Care successfully got through to the finalist stage of the Leicestershire Business Awards for the categories of:
- Excellence in Customer Service
- Outstanding Growth
Simon Harris, MD for DHU LLR (Urgent Care) said: “I am delighted that DHU has been shortlisted for the final of the East Midland Chamber of Commerce Award in two categories for Outstanding Growth and Excellence in Customer Service.”
