A key UCLH Cancer Collaborative project has been shortlisted for an HSJ partnership award. These awards recognise and celebrate the best partnerships in health that work for the benefit of both patients and the NHS.

The ‘out of hospital’ project is designed to bring some cancer treatments closer to home and is a partnership between UCLH Cancer Collaborative and the pharmaceutical company Amgen, as part of the Cancer Vanguard’s Pharma Challenge. Together, we have mapped out how some breast cancer treatments can be delivered in patients' homes or in community settings under the care of their doctor. For patients who want to do this, it can save travel time and waiting in hospital clinics. This is good news for patients and may also demonstrate savings to commissioners.

The HSJ judges were looking for innovative projects which demonstrate outstanding commitment to working in collaboration with the NHS, cutting-edge innovation and service provision. Additionally, the projects needed to be a beacon of best practice, offer ongoing benefits, add value and not replicate something the NHS could do for itself. The judges were impressed with the high standard of entries, testifying to the clear achievement of any shortlisted organisation.

The winners of the partnership awards will be announced on Thursday 8 March at the Royal College of Physicians in London.

More information about our work with Amgen and the Pharma Challenge is available here. You can watch a short film about the project below.
