Improvements at Imperial College Healthcare recognised in the 2022 Health Service Journal (HSJ) awards shortlist

Imperial College Healthcare has been shortlisted in five categories of this year’s national HSJ Awards, recognising outstanding contributions to healthcare:

  • Trust of the Year for building an organisational culture that is delivering a more engaged workforce, strong community relationships alongside excellent clinical and academic results, all of which enabled our Covid-19 response
  • Military and Civilian Health Partnership for the development of the Veterans Trauma Network, the UK’s first specific provision for veterans with physical healthcare challenges
  • Primary and Community Care Innovation of the Year for a cross-disciplinary end-to-end pathway redesign of heart failure care in our integrated triborough service in north west London
  • Digitising Patient Care for our work to integrate digital technologies to support patients with heart failure in our integrated triborough service in north west London
  • Driving Efficiency through Technology for the continued rollout of our electronic patient record system, with the aim of making 100 per cent of health records paper-free

Commenting on the shortlisting, chief executive Professor Tim Orchard said: “The past three years have been the most challenging ever faced by the NHS and I am delighted that the progress we have made has been recognised by the judging panel who shortlisted 219 entries from the 1,067 originally received.

“A theme across all of our entries has been collaboration – both within and outside our organisation – which will remain vital to address the challenges that face us following the pandemic.

“This is only a snapshot of our work, and there is much more that we have to do as we continue to improve our organisational culture, but I hope that every one of our 14,500 staff take pride in their contribution to improving the patient care that underpins this achievement.”

The winners will be announced on November 17 2022.
