There are five categories open to any Trust service or team; clinical or non-clinical.
Excellence in improving health
Improving people’s health and wellbeing is one of our strategic objectives. This award is for a piece of work that can evidence how it has improved the health and wellbeing – or reduced health inequalities – for people who use our services, their carers or people who live in our local area. It could also be for work that has improved the health and wellbeing of our staff. The judges will be looking for how this is more than just normal day-to-day practice and how this work can be sustained.

Excellence in improving care
Improving the quality and experience of all that we do is one of our strategic objectives. This award will recognise an excellent project or initiative that identified an area where quality and/or experience needed to be improved, set objectives and delivered these. This category includes work undertaken by non-clinical teams that impacts on quality and experience of care. Judges will be looking for clear aims and great outcomes. Judges will also look at how this work can be shared and learning applied elsewhere.

Improving our use of resources is one of our strategic objectives.
