9th July 2019
A celebration of the 70th birthday of the National Health Service England
“The Person-Centred Care Champion Award” of the NHS70 Parliamentary Awards, an honour being supported by EIT Health, was bestowed upon Community Tissue Viability Services at Pennine Acute NHS Trust in Manchester in a ceremony held in the House of Commons in London, England on 4 July 2018.
The NHS70 Parliamentary Awards, which were given out 4 July 2018 in recognition of the 70th anniversary of the NHS England, were established to engage Members of Parliament in celebrating the NHS. They identify and highlight innovative and high quality care across every constituency in England and they thank staff for their dedication, hard work and commitment by recognising and honouring their achievements.
EIT Health is supporting “The Person-Centred Care Champion Award”, one of the NHS70 Parliamentary awards.
The winners of the “The Person-Centred Care Champion Award”, The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust North Manchester Community Services Tissue Viability team, deliver a service tailored around the needs of those who are homeless and hard to reach. Their drop-in wound care service provides care to clients at the right time and in the right place. We have seen a reduction in secondary care attendance and have developed meaningful engagement with many members of this client group who often struggle to have their healthcare needs met.
“The Person-Centred Care Champion Award” was created to celebrate the achievements of healthcare professionals adopting a more person-centred approach to health and social care. This award seeks to highlight the individuals, teams or organisations which are going the furthest towards breaking down barriers between different services to ensure patients with long-term and multiple needs get the right care in the right place for them. A large number of NHS healthcare professionals currently provide health and social care services that are extremely responsive to patients’ needs and, thanks to this award, their work will be noted.
