NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU celebrates triple HSJ award nominations
We are thrilled to share that NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU’s Transformation Unit, has earned three esteemed nominations at the 2024 HSJ Partnership Awards. This achievement reflects a dynamic collaboration with the NHS, highlighting cutting-edge healthcare projects within the UK.
Our shortlisted projects:
Clinical and Care Professional Leadership Framework
The Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board’s clinical and care professional leadership framework, developed in collaboration with our Transformation Unit, has been shortlisted for the Most Effective Contribution to Integrated Health and Care category at the 2024 HSJ Partnership Awards.
This project marks a significant transition from local clinical commissioning groups to integrated care systems, emphasising a multidisciplinary approach to decision-making. The framework’s development involved system-wide workshops and a multi-professional steering group, resulting in a comprehensive leadership and development framework aligned with national guidance.
Echocardiography recovery plan
The echocardiography recovery plan, a collaboration between our Transformation Unit and the Cheshire and Merseyside Acute and Specialist Trusts Collaborative (CMAST), has been shortlisted for the Diagnostic Project of the Year at the 2024 HSJ Partnership Awards. This project, a part of the diagnostic programme, aimed to reduce waiting times for echocardiograms which are essential tests for assessing heart function. The plan focused on standardising processes, addressing patient backlogs, and reducing access disparities, achieving a record number of patients seen within six weeks post-COVID.
Active hospitals (Phase 2)
Phase 2 of the Active Hospitals project, a collaborative effort between our Transformation Unit, the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, and Sport England, has been shortlisted for the Most Impactful Partnership in Preventative Healthcare at the 2024 HSJ Partnership Awards. This programme, part of the Moving Healthcare Professionals programme, focused on embedding physical activity promotion within hospital trusts, increasing staff awareness, and fostering patient engagement in physical activity to improve health outcomes.
These recognitions from the HSJ Partnership Awards are not only a celebration of our past achievements but also an encouragement for continuous development in patient-centred and integrated healthcare solutions. These acknowledgements reinforce our dedication to healthcare innovation and collaboration.
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at Evolution London on March 21st, 2024. The awards’ judging panel, comprising a diverse group of highly respected figures and healthcare leaders from across the UK, reflects the comprehensive and varied perspectives within the healthcare community.
