Diabetes.co.uk Announced as Lloyds Bank National Business Awards Finalist

Diabetes.co.uk has been shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Positive Social Impact Award at the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. Diabetes.co.uk is a digital health organisation which is shaping the digital health landscape as we know it. Operating from offices in the University of Warwick Science Park, Diabetes.co.uk is an invaluable and much needed resource, raising awareness and providing digital health interventions that are affecting health outcomes for the worldwide diabetes community. A platform to support, talk, and share stories – with over 475,000 members and 3 million visitors to the website each month.

Arjun Panesar, CEO said: “It”s fantastic for the team to be shortlisted for the Lloyds Bank Positive Social Impact Award as it recognises the contribution Diabetes.co.uk is making towards improving health – not only for people with diabetes but the greater healthcare spectrum. Diabetes.co.uk is Europe”s largest diabetes community with members from over 200 countries. The Low Carb Program has had over 140,000 people enrol within 6 months and is seeing fantastic health outcomes as well as tremendous health savings for the NHS. It’s great for this to be recognised and to be part of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2016.”

The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners.

Described as “the Oscars of great British business” by David Cameron, former Prime Minister, this year’s prestigious award ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15th November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.

For the first time, RT Hon Conor McGinn MP recently hosted a reception for the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards at the House of Commons. This enabled finalists to meet fellow entrants, the National Business Awards Advisory Board members, judges (who they will present to in September) and sponsors of each category.

Tom Broughton, Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task. But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
