The PSC announced as HSJ Partnership Awards 2020 finalists
The PSC are delighted to have been nominated as a finalist for the HSJ Partnership Awards 2020 alongside Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The PSC, formerly known as 2020 Delivery, and Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are delighted to have been announced as a finalist for the HSJ Partnership awards 2020. They were shortlisted for the Consultancy Partnership of the Year following urgent care transformation work at the Trust to set up the #ImprovED Improvement Programme. This programme has helped to reduce ambulance delays and waits in the Trust’s Emergency Departments for thousands of patients across the county.
Chris Bradley, The PSC Director, said of the most recent nomination:
“Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s enthusiasm for quality improvement and their ability to drive change through strong inter-departmental relationships was key to the success of the work. Our team would like to thank the staff across the Trust – from the Board, to the ward – for their hard work during the project and their continued commitment to the #ImprovED programme.”
The PSC are a past winner of this award in partnership with Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, the pair having been announced as the Consultancy Partnership of the Year 2019 for their urgent care work. Targeting problems faced across the urgent care pathway, and associated staff morale,
In Portsmouth, The PSC worked with frontline staff and senior management at Portsmouth to make rapid improvements by running targeted ‘sprints’. As a result of the intensive sprints and the training and mentoring of 20 improvement leaders, the Trust saw a step-change improvement in 4-hour ED performance. The Trust is now continuing to cultivate a cultural shift towards daily, proactive problem-solving.
We were particularly proud of the judges' complimentary comments after our presentation for the Consultancy Partnership of the Year entry:
“The winners showed clear passion and enthusiasm from the whole team. The project was an excellent demonstration of how all clinical professions can deliver change, from board to ward. There is further vision for developing and sharing learning from this experience beyond the Trust.”
Both of these projects are examples of The PSC's established approach to urgent care transformation - a model that has delivered improvements in a number of trusts across the country.
The awards, run by the Health Service Journal, celebrate the "most effective partnerships with the NHS and highlight the benefits which working with the private and third sectors can bring to patients and NHS organisations." The awards are judged by an extensive panel of individuals from across the NHS and wider healthcare sector.
