This award looks to recognise, celebrate and create a platform for the best products and services being used by the NHS.

The shortlist for this award is based around the individual category winners from the HSJ Partnership Awards, and celebrates the vital role of private and third sector organisations in our healthcare system. Shortlisted candidates have been identified as leaders and innovators within their individual market sector, and this award will recognise the most effective and value-driving private sector partnership with the NHS.


  • Describe the brief provided by the NHS partner
  • Outline the context in which the NHS has decided that private sector input is needed.
  • What were the targets and goals for the partnership? Give detail on the financial, value and outcome-based targets


Describe the results in detail. Provide evidence of savings, financial success, value for money for the NHS partner. What other outcomes have been considered? Describe successes in reduction of bureaucracy, waiting times and improvements in capacity, efficiency, patient outcomes and experience.


How have the partnership parties worked to share best practice? What elements of the partnership have the potential of replication and application elsewhere in the organisation or in other organisations? 


Describe with supporting evidence how value for money has been delivered for the trust. What has the partnership achieved over and above what the NHS partner would have been able to do alone. Outline value achieved from the partnership in terms of increased capacity, reduced inefficiency, enhanced patient safety, outcomes and experience.


  • Clear evidence of engagement of staff and stakeholders in the development and implementation of the project or partnership
  • Evidence of patient involvement in the project will be important to mention
