CCGs’ achievements recognised at the HSJ Awards

We were delighted to see some of our members celebrated as award winners at the HSJ Awards. Awards were given out in 23 categories, including two new categories recognising the work the NHS does to support both ex-military personnel and reservists among its own staff.

Sunderland CCG won the Military and Civilian Health Partnership Award for “Reaching out to our military veterans and their families, reservists and adult volunteer cadets”. Read more about the winning project, which aims to identify veterans and provide them with the best care possible.

Hull CCG won the award for Community or Primary Care Service Redesign – North/Midlands/East for The Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre which provides a community frailty pathway with GPs, advanced nurse practitioners, social workers, pharmacists and other specialists working together as a single system. Read more.

City and Hackney CCG, working in collaboration with system partners in East London, won the award for Mental Health Innovation of the Year for their “Alliance Model for Primary Care SMI Physical Health”, a collaborative approach which last year achieved the highest SMI physical health check coverage in the country. Read more.

Congratulations also go to our members City and Hackney CCG, Ealing CCG and Vale of York CCG who were highly commended, as well as to all of the CCGs that were among the shortlisted entries. See the full list of winners and finalists.

HSJ editor, Alastair McLellan, alluded to the upcoming general election and said: “my hope is that those politicians who truly value the NHS’s wellbeing will study the work of our award winners and therefore learn what success really looks like in the NHS.”
