Improving the skills and knowledge of staff who treat patients, manage systems and deliver services will help to improve patient outcomes. Upskilling can also improve capacity as well as care. Many types of business have an interest in working with NHS organisations to help educate and train workforces. Whether new treatments, technologies or processes there should be a benefit to the patient and to the staff.
Judges will be looking for educational programmes which have improved the skills and knowledge of staff within an NHS organisation. Winners will be able to demonstrate a link between their partnership and the results. Demonstrable benefits could be improved capacity, treatment pathways and patient outcomes.
