National award success for Coventry-Oxford Network for Transplantation

An innovative partnership between University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) has been honoured at a national awards ceremony.

The success of the Coventry-Oxford Network for Transplantation (COxNeT) was recognised at the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) and British Transplantation Society (BTS) UK Awards for Excellence in Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation.

UHCW and OUH were joint-winners in the Excellence in Delivering Patient Care category.

COxNeT allows patients from both sites to receive transplants at the other when resources have not permitted surgery at their primary site.

UHCW Consultant Surgeon and Transplant Service Lead, Deb Roy, said: “There were multiple nominations in each category so we are delighted to be chosen as the winner.

"Our sincere thanks must go the senior executive teams at UHCW and OUH for their continued support and commitment to patient care.”

Since its launch in May 2018, the partnership has allowed more than 150 patients to successfully undergo a kidney transplant.

Professor Meghana Pandit, Chief Executive Officer at OUH, said: “This is wonderful news and I am incredibly proud of all of the teams involved.  This partnership has made a real difference to patients’ lives.

“On a personal level, I am also exceptionally pleased as I have seen COxNeT develop over the years and been part of both teams. A huge congratulations to all and thank you to NHSBT for recognising the partnership in this way.”
