Trust achievements recognised at the Health Service Journal awards

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust won three accolades at the national Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards last night (17 November), highlighting the impact of our collaborative approach to improving patient care:

  • Primary and Community Care Innovation of the Year - for the Trust and North West London ICS’ cross-disciplinary end-to-end pathway redesign of heart failure care
  • Digitising Patient Care Award - for the Trust and North West London ICS’ work integrating digital technologies to support patients with heart failure
  • Military and Civilian Health Partnership Award - for the Trust and NHS England’s development of the Veterans Trauma Network, the UK’s first specific provision for veterans with physical healthcare challenges.

The annual awards recognise outstanding contributions to healthcare. The HSJ received more than 1,000 entries this year, which 140 judges from senior roles in the health service whittled down over two stages to decide the 25 winners. In addition to the three accolades won by the Trust, we were also shortlisted for two further categories: 

  • 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
  • Driving Efficiency through Technology Award - for the continued rollout of our electronic patient record system, with the aim of making 100 per cent of health records paper-free.

Professor Tim Orchard, chief executive of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust said: “It’s a huge achievement to even be shortlisted for these prestigious awards and a testament to the passion, commitment and expertise of colleagues across our organisation. To win three awards – built on collaboration with key partners – is fantastic!”
