Acute or Specialist Services Redesign - NEW
The drive to consider place-based rather than organisation-based care is leading all types of providers to consider how they can redesign services to better and more efficiently meet the needs of patients.
This award will recognise NHS teams or organisations that have successfully made changes to the way in which they deliver services. We are interested in examples of redesign from acute and specialist care which have led to improvements for patients. Judges will be particularly interested in examples of projects which have increased collaborative working between different parts of the health and care service.
- A clear rationale for the redesign
- An explanation of how the redesign drew on existing best practice
- Evidence the change has led to improved patient care, improved experience, improved outcomes and/or improved value for money. This must have a quantitative aspect, but can include qualitative feedback as well.
- Projects which have embedded and spread to other departments, settings or organisations
- Alternatively, clear evidence the work is potentially replicable and scalable
- Evidence the redesign has delivered financial savings alongside improved patient experience
- Quantitative evidence of improved value should be supplied
- Proof of consistently strong team and/or organisation engagement in the redesign
- Proof of strong partnerships and engagement with all those impacted by the redesign – including those in other organisations and settings
- Patient involvement in the redesign
