With pre-pandemic pressure on the health and social care workforce already high, burnout risk following the worst health crisis the NHS has faced since its establishment is extremely high. Being proactive as well as reactive in supporting the workforce and the wellbeing of individuals has never been more important.
Looking further towards patient safety, supporting staff to deliver the best possible care is crucial.
This award is open to companies that provide a service to the NHS that demonstrates support of staff wellbeing, improvement of culture and/or an initiative demonstrating a positive impact on patient care. Judges are looking for ambitious projects which can demonstrate an effective approach with pre-determined goals which had clear benefits for staff, the teams that manage workforce and by inference (or pre-determined metrics) improve the delivery of services.
- Entrants could be any business or entity working with NHS clients to deliver improvements in workforce management and wellbeing initiatives.
- Judges will be looking for innovative solutions and improvements for either single or multiple clients
- Evidence must relate to services provided within the past 2 years up until the awards entry deadline
