Newark: Teams at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust shortlisted for Health Service Journal Patient Safety Awards
Three teams from Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have been shortlisted for the Health Service Journal Patient Safety Awards.
The trust’s safety culture programme has been shortlisted in the safety culture category.
The second shortlisted entry is in the improving care for older people category, which recognises the significant improvements the trust has made in reducing the amount of time some older patients need to spend in hospital.
The trust has also been shortlisted in the end-of-life care category alongside a number of other health and care partners across Nottinghamshire for the joined up End of Life Care Together Programme.
The Patient Safety Awards help drive improvements in culture and quality across the NHS by celebrating the teams and the people putting safety first.
Dr David Selwyn, medical director at Sherwood Forest Hospitals, said: “Huge congratulations to all the teams who have been shortlisted in this year’s Patient Safety Awards.This is just reward for the hard work and innovation that has gone into each of the projects, and we wish them well for the final judging.”
Winners will be selected ahead of the ceremony, which will take place virtually in November.
