Yakult awards

The Yakult company has a strong tradition of supporting students, researchers and healthcare professionals, particularly at the start of their careers. For many years, a series of awards have been sponsored by Yakult at universities, institutes and other organisations throughout the UK and Ireland in the fields of nutrition, dietetics, gastroenterology, nursing, medicine, microbiology, sports science and science education. 

We are pleased to continue supporting a range of awards in 2017 including the RCNi Patient’s Choice Award, the CN Award for Clinical Nutrition Professional of the year, and several student awards at universities across the UK and Ireland.  

RCNi Patient's Choice Award

Yakult are delighted to support the Patient’s Choice Award for our 4th year running.  All nominees for this award are chosen by members of the public to thank a healthcare professional for the care either themselves or a loved one received. Yakult would like to congratulate this years winner, Joanna O'Toole, Respiratory Specialist Nurse, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Congratulations to all the nominees of the Patient's Choice Award, and all nominees and winners of this years RCNi Nurse Awards.
