It is incredible news to be selected as a finalist for The Innovate Awards in the following category: Best Workforce Innovation Award.
We entered the awards with The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust after successfully implementing a clinical communication tool to save time, reduce workforce pressures and enable more efficient decision-making. The Innovate Awards saw a grand total of 194 entries from health and care teams across the country covering ten award categories. The ten eventual winners will also compete for ‘Innovation Champion of the Year’ to be announced on the evening of the award ceremony in September.
Commenting on the awards, Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive, NHS Confederation from NHS Confederation said:
“Judges across all the award categories have remarked on how impressive and inspiring the work contained in these submissions has been. It has been a delight to see the wonderful efforts taking place in terms of innovation in the health and care sector and it is hugely important to recognise and celebrate this.”
The 43 judges included prominent healthcare figures from NHS England, regional NHS Trusts and Integrated Care Boards, universities, patient involvement organisations, health equality organisations and innovation specialists.
