Spirit Healthcare’s CEO and Chief Mischievist Chris Barker, has been presented with the award for Social Entrepreneur of the Year in a glittering ceremony at the Leadenhall Building in London.

Recognised at the inaugural Barclays Entrepreneur Awards for his work at Spirit Healthcare to improve the lives of patients suffering from diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and heart failure, Chris Barker was one of just five entrepreneurs across the UK to scoop an award.

“Winning the social entrepreneur award from Barclays was an unexpected honour and a remarkable platform to help us embark on our plans for 2017.”
