UHCW shortlisted for Trust of the Year and three other HSJ Awards

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust is proud to reveal it has been shortlisted in four categories at this year’s Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards, which recognise outstanding contribution to healthcare.

For the second year running, UHCW has beaten off stiff competition to be shortlisted for Trust of the Year in celebration of its impressive recovery performance, continued innovation and transformation and focus on addressing health inequalities.

The Trust has also been recognised for:

Acute Sector Innovation – a multi-disciplinary team approach has led to improved access and reduced waiting times for patients with eye emergencies.

Place Based Partnership – UHCW, as the provider of Musculoskeletal physiotherapy and specialist care for Coventry, has worked closely with its partners to design and deliver a person-centred service for patients.

Reducing Health Inequalities – The Trust has developed a unique app to consider clinical prioritisation of elective care, which takes into account factors driving health inequality and uses them to help prioritise access to healthcare.

A staggering 1,067 entries were received for the HSJ Awards 2022 – showing the scale of the Trust’s achievements.

Professor Andy Hardy, Chief Executive Officer, said: “This really is wonderful news - the fact we’ve been shortlisted for four categories in the HSJ Awards 2022 is testament to the dedication and expertise shown by our staff and hard-working teams, who go above and beyond to improve patient outcomes and quality of service and care.”

The judging panel was made up of a diverse range of highly influential and respected figures within the healthcare community.

HSJ Editor, Alastair McLellan, said: “On behalf of all my colleagues, it gives me great pleasure to congratulate UHCW on being shortlisted as a finalist. All of the applications represent the ‘very best of the NHS’ and often leave our esteemed panel of judges with an impossible choice!

“We’re all very much looking forward to welcoming our finalists to the awards ceremony in November, celebrating their impressive achievements and jointly acknowledging our values of sharing best practice, improving patient outcomes and continuously driving for better service. But we never forget that the award ceremony is not just a celebration within a night, but a platform to recognise the hard work of all our NHS staff, all year round.”

The selected winners will be announced during the awards ceremony at the Battersea Evolution Centre, London, on Thursday, 17th November.
