The awards were a great evening of recognition and celebration for all the organisations demonstrating improved practice and delivery in patient safety.
This year saw fierce competition for these coveted awards with over 650 submissions, of which only 170 made it to the final cut, and from those 18 deserving winners were decided by our expert panel of judges (with an additional ten projects also receiving a high commendation in their category.)
“The Patient Safety Awards continue to recognise and reward outstanding practice within the NHS and independent healthcare organisations. Now in their 8th year, the awards received a high number of outstanding quality entries into our 18 diverse categories. Each of the winners have demonstrated excellence in their particular field of expertise at a time when budgets and other constraints have made it harder than ever to provide safe, effective care. They have fought off strong competition to win, and we salute their well-deserved success, which in most cases represents many years of dedication and hard work.”
Alastair McLellan, Editor, HSJ and Jenni Middleton, Editor, Nursing Times
