At talkhealth, we’re not ones to blow our own trumpet. We try our best to provide you with the best service possible and that includes maintaining and updating this blog. This platform is such an important part of what talkhealth is – an intereactive space for people to connect, share and feel empowered.
So it’s really rewarding and reassuring to have won not one, not two but three accolades so far this year.
Last month, we were crowned Best Online Health Community 2020 by the Southern Enterprise Awards. And that news came just weeks after our blog was named as one of the top 10 UK blogs by Vuelio.
The Southern Enterprise Awards focusses on rewarding ‘the often unnoticed efforts of SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises)’ from the region. 2020 is the third year that SME News has hosted the awards, which it says allows them ‘the privilege and opportunity to reward the hardworking individuals and firms hailing from this dynamic region’.
The awards are judged on merit by an in-house team of researchers who analyze the information available online and in the public domain. Rather than being influenced by the number of votes received, they claim that the awards are determined by quality – which is music to our ears!
After what has been a difficult period for all businesses – small and large – it’s really rewarding to have had our hard work recognised.

Other blogs that made the Vuelo top 10 list included The Hippocratic Post, What Allergy? and Psychreg. Every site on the list offers something a little different – from providing information specifically for those living with allergies to connecting Heath professions with studies from around the world.
We’re confident of the services that we provide as a platform and our blog is a really major part of what talkhealth is. It allows us to connect members with people just like them – rather than continually hearing from emotionally removed experts and academics.
Our CEO, Catriona Williams, was delighted with the news.
‘The talkhealth blog plays an important role within the talkhealth community and it’s great that our members’ contributions have been recognised,’ she said.
‘While our blog gives us an informal platform for posting updates about our services, it also crucially offers our members the chance to share their stories and experiences. Thousands read their posts. They really can be a lifeline of support and inspiration.’
Lastly, we’ve been included in Feedspot’s Top 60 UK Health Blogs and Websites on the Web in 2020.
Thanks to everyone who helps to make this blog so successful and useful, and here’s to continuing the great work!
