Wast Hills Hospital in Kings Norton, Birmingham has been recognised for its excellence at the national Autism Professional Awards.
The hospital has been shortlisted in the Outstanding Adult Services category. The judges focused on four areas; innovation, creativity, impact and sustainability, highlighting services that have made quantifiable benefits to the lives of the people they support.
The Autism Professionals Awards, part of the National Autistic Society, have been created to recognise and reward services and professionals who are leading the way in innovative autism practice and making a real difference to the lives of autistic people in the UK.
The Awards seek to acknowledge the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals, teams and organisations who have demonstrated excellence, dedication and commitment to improving the lives of people with autism.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony on 7th March in Harrogate.
This is the latest accolade for Wast Hills, which received the ‘Great Autism Practice Award’ at the prestigious 2016 National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards.
