2015 NATIONAL WINNER - NHS OUTSTANDING COLLABORATIVE LEADERSHIP

  West Suffolk Care Home Model, West Suffolk CCG

Nominated by Gussy Alamein

The project has delivered a drop in the number of hospital admissions from care homes, reliving pressure on the hospitals and enabling financial savings for the CCG. The cornerstone of the project has been talking with residents and their families about planing for an emergency and has guaranteed a huge level of comfort, support and peace of mind. This innovative model has identified specific gaps in services and has drawn together professionals from across the spectrum of care to address arising issues. Whilst the primary focus was intended to reduce the acute admissions, though collaborative working the model has yielded far greater benefits for the health and social care system across West Suffolk. The CCG is now investing to extended the model across additional care homes in Suffolk.       

"superb example of collaborative working yielding measurable benefits. The scale of the project was also impressive. This team show how to use the learning from their initial work to spread good practice more widely."

Ann Nutt, Chair of Patient Panel, Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust

Nominated by Shahid Sardar, Head of Patient Engagement and Experience Team

"Ann appears to have made a huge impact on her Trust, influencing both service design and patient experience. She also leaves a lasting legacy for bereavement services. Her contribution is all the more remarkable as she is an unpaid volunteer.”
