Thank you to everyone who supported Psychreg during the online public voting for the UK Blog Awards 2017 (Health and Social Care category) last December 2016.
I am delighted to announce that Psychreg made it through the public voting and is one of the eight finalists. Hence, I will now be attending the awards evening on Friday 21st April 2017 which will be held at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel in London. To be shortlisted for the UK Blog Awards is a great honour and I am truly grateful to all who made this possible!
The other seven finalists are:
- #MentalMovement, a grassroots community mental health initiative (and a completely unfunded one at present) started by a couple of really compassionate albeit slightly angry human beings who are still awaiting their own therapies.
- Bright Copper Kettles, a collaborative blog which features articles from a variety of people and companies who provide services for older people, including those with dementia, and/or those who care for them.
- Cancer Research UK Science Blog, a blog which covers the latest cancer research, health and policy news, including those that are funded by the charity.
- Fuse, a Public Health Research Centre of Excellence that brings together academics and researchers from five universities in the North East of England.
- MidMed, a platform which aims to provide its customers, healthcare professionals with the latest industry news, fantastic facts, infographics and the latest updated from their company.
- MyNutriCounter, a blog devoted to sending out a positive wave of nutrition and healthy eating.
- OPAAL, the only UK-based national organisation supporting independent advocacy services for older people.
