In running for awards

Sherwood Forest Hospitals Trust is celebrating being shortlisted in three categories in the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Patient Safety Awards.

The awards celebrate the best examples of outstanding patient safety in NHS organisations nationwide and especially reward projects that demonstrate clear improvements for patients.

Teams from Sherwood Forest Hospitals have been nominated for the Learning Disabilities Initiative of the Year; the Best Partnership Solution Improving Patient Safety; and Quality Improvement Initiative of the Year.

Andy Haynes, medical director for the trust, which runs King’s Mill and Mansfield Community hospitals, said: “We are delighted that we have been shortlisted for three HSJ Patient Safety awards.

“We always strive to give the care at Sherwood that we would want for our own friends and family and I am proud to see that this is being recognised nationally.

“Providing safe, personalised, timely care to all our patients is at the heart of everything we do and I think that three nominations that recognise this indicate that we are making huge progress in this area.

“To have three different teams shortlisted in these awards is a credit to the innovative work taking place at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Trust, and it is a real boost to the teams involved across our three hospitals.”

The awards ceremony is in July.
