Despite the demanding circumstances of the past 2 years, over 190 entries have been received for this year’s HSJ Partnership Awards, with 123 projects making it to the final shortlist. The volume and standards of applications has been a true testament to those health and social care staff, who continue to push outstanding work and transformational projects across the sector.
The judging panel was once again made up of a diverse range of highly influential and respected figures within the healthcare community, including Dr Matt Aiello (National Programmes Lead, Education Reform, Health Education England); Dr Elena Bechberger (National Programme Director – LVHC Programme, NHS England and NHS Improvement); Claire Igoe (Head of Environmental Sustainability - Manchester University FT) and Vinice Thomas (Director of Nursing and Quality, NHS England and NHS Improvement).
Following the intense and in-depth judging process, P2G was shortlisted, ahead of the official awards ceremony to be held next year (24th March). Standing out amongst tough competition from hundreds of other exemplary applicants, P2G have been selected based on their ambition, visionary spirit and the demonstrable positive impact that they/their project has/have had on patient and staff experiences within the health and/or social care sector.
The project for Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust, centred on the turnaround of the first PFI Hospital to be constructed. Having operated for 19 years, the perception of the Trust was that the PFI was suffering from a lack of management with a deterioration in the condition of the Hospital, and service delivery that did not meet Trust’s needs. The project was designed to ensure that the NHS would receive the services it was paying for and, with just 10 years until contract expiry, that the Hospital would be returned to public ownership as an asset rather than a liability.
Bruce Dalgleish, Partner at P2G comments, “We are delighted to have been shortlisted for Best Consultancy Partnership with the NHS, recognising the collaborative efforts and dedication of our staff members over the last 12 months to successfully implement the Comprehensive Business Review of Darent Valley Hospital PFI contract. We are committed to delivering improved outcomes for our public sector clients, and to be chosen among the other incredible nominees is a wonderful achievement. This nomination has been a tremendous boost to staff at P2G and I am sure it will bolster our continued efforts to improve our services.
