UCLH wins top award

The Trust was the winner in the category for Enhancing Quality and Efficiency in Services for Children and Young People.

Rebecca Thompson, nurse consultant for paediatric and adolescent diabetes, Dr Deborah Christie, consultant clinical psychologist, and Professor Peter Hindmarsh, paediatric diabetes consultant, collected the award. 

Rebecca said: “We entered our improved diabetes service for children and young people.  Our campaign has been about making every young person with diabetes matter. 

”We are delighted that our efforts to increase access to services have been recognised at this level.”

The Trust was also short-listed in two further categories - Good Corporate Citizenship and Managing Long Term Conditions.

In the Good Corporate Citizenship category the Trust was short-listed for its achievements in meeting targets in the NHS Good Corporate Citizenship assessment model – with focus on travel, procurement, workforce, facilities management, community engagement and buildings.

The category for Managing Long Term Conditions was entered by the NeuroResponse team.  NeuroResponse is a three-stranded tele care system that helps neurology patients self-manage in their local communities; it improves the efficiency and effectiveness of existing services and provides expert advice and care that may not easily be available face-to-face.

Organisers of the event said: “The awards have seen a huge number of entries this year so to be short listed and made a finalist is a fantastic achievement.”
