The Evening

The LaingBuisson Awards are the Oscars of health and social care. In their 12th year of recognising excellence, they are judged independently and objectively and focus on the people providing the care as well as their advisors

In 2017, host Gyles Brandreth entertained 850 guests before announcing the winners of last year’s fiercely fought awards programme. We also managed to raise over £24,000 on the night for our charity partner, Cancer Research UK.

This year the Awards are returning to the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, a fantastic, modern venue in sight of the Houses of Parliament and opposite St Thomas’s Hospital, and Gyles Brandreth returns as our host for what we expect to be another successful event.


Gyles Brandreth is a writer, broadcaster, former MP and Government Whip, best known these days as a reporter on The One Show on BBC1 and a regular on Radio 4's Just a Minute.  His TV appearances range from Have I Got News for You to QI and his many books include The Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries and the No 1 best-seller: The 7 Secrets of Happiness.
