The 2016 Health Business Awards
The Health Business Awards returns in 2016 to once again recognise examples of excellence in the NHS. Entry is now open for the event, which takes place at the Grange Hotel in London on November 29
Grange Hotel, St. Pauls, played host to the 7th Health Business Awards on the 3rd December 2015, sponsored by CCube Solutions. The winners were announced during a successful ceremony hosted by Doctor Mark Porter. NHS Foundation Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Collaborates, Partnerships, and Air Ambulance Services joined together to celebrate the very best within the NHS.
Winners, included NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group who developed a “Street Triage” pilot last year that sees mental health professional’s work with the police, sharing relevant information which helped to advert a person’s attempt to end their own life on nine occasions and was responsible for savings in excess of £130,000. As well as, Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust for their “Immunise Your Selfie” campaign which delivered a digitally-led internal communications campaign to encourage staff to have the flu vaccination.
The most competitive category this year was the “Healthcare IT Award”. With a revolutionary new electronic medical records system which has improved the way referrals are dealt with and medical notes are indexed, routed and shared among clinicians and clerical staff. This has boosted efficiency, reduced costs, and ultimately, enhanced patient care…this year the award went to Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
This year the “Outstanding Achievement in Healthcare Award” recognised Frimley Health Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, who have a patient-centred culture which is evidence of strong leadership. Staff had been praised for their pre-natal care and cancer support and biomedical scientists from its pathology department recognised in their efforts to combat the spread of the Ebola Virus. Further to this, under the Care Commission’s new rating system, September last year saw the trust become the first to be recognised as “Outstanding”.
There were some truly outstanding examples of excellence highlighted at the Health Business Awards, and everyone shortlisted deserves great credit for what has been achieved over the past 12 months.
