Trust of the Year
Trusts have not been having an easy time of it lately. For most, swelling deficits are cause for concern. So too are the challenges of delayed transfers of care, and of joining with local partners to create sustainability and transformation plans.
This is an award which recognises an organisation handling those challenges well. It’s about recognising those providers which are offering excellent, patient-centric care built on strong engagement between clinicians within and beyond the organisation. We are particularly seeking organisations with a clear understanding of how they will need to adapt to create a viable long-term local health economy.
- A trust with a clear vision for both today and the future – grounded in robust reasoning and a deep understanding of current and future patient need
- Evidence of how the trust’s work has been informed by existing best practice
- Evidence the work of the trust 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.
- Trusts which have instigated ways of working which have spread beyond their organisational boundaries, or clear evidence these methods are potentially replicable elsewhere
- Quantitative evidence the trust is delivering value for money
- Demonstrably strong clinical leadership
- Proof of consistently strong staff engagement
- Evidence of strong partnerships with all relevant local organisations across the care economy
- Proof of consistently strong patient involvement and engagement
