Trust recognised at HSJ Partnership Awards
Imperial College Healthcare’s collaborative work was recognised at the recent Health Service Journal (HSJ) Partnership Awards.
The Trust was named as a finalist in two categories:
- Best Healthcare Provider Partnership with the NHS - for creating the North West London Collaborative Bank, alongside Patchwork Health, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust.
- Best Consultancy Partnership with the NHS – for TrackIT, a cloud-based platform for developing and overseeing key projects and programmes management, developed by CPS, Imperial College Healthcare and London North West University Healthcare Trust.
The annual awards recognise the most effective collaborations with the NHS. Over 141 submitted projects were evaluated by 90 judges across 21 categories.
North West London Collaborative Bank – finalist in Best Healthcare Provider Partnership with the NHS category
The four acute NHS providers in north west London came together with Patchwork Health to create the North West London Collaborative Bank, a digital platform which allows bank doctors and nurses from any of the partner Trusts to see and book available shifts in other Trusts. This is an example of ever closer working and collaboration within the NHS. As well as making things easier for staff, the bank is helping hospitals staff shifts that can’t be filled with their own internal bank and ultimately helping ensure our hospitals are safely staffed.
TrackIT – finalist in the Best Consultancy Partnership with the NHS category
Imperial College Healthcare and London North West University Healthcare NHS Trusts worked with CPS, a UK based Microsoft Business Solutions Partner, to create a cloud-based platform for developing and overseeing key projects and programmes. This is called TrackIT and provides the Trusts with more accurate reporting available in real-time, clear visibility of project impacts, progress, timelines, and risks. The platform is already helping improve efficiency, productivity and decision-making, for the benefit of staff and patients.
