NHS Birmingham CrossCity CCG has been shortlisted for three 2016 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards.
Dr Masood Nazir, the CCG’s Information Lead, has been nominated for Clinical Leader of the Year; Your Care Connected has been nominated for Enhancing Care by Sharing Data and Information; and Information Management & Technology Support Officer Kim Britton has been nominated as Rising Star.
The awards, which recognise, celebrate and promote the finest achievements in the NHS, will take place on 23 November at Intercontinental O2, London.
Shortlisted entrants demonstrated outstanding practice and innovation that helped to improve patient care and enhance value and efficiency and have overcome fierce competition to be judged as among UK healthcare’s leading exponents.
The shortlisted organisations will now complete presentations and interviews to a judging panel made up of senior and influential figures from the health sector. These include:
- Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive, Salford Royal Foundation Trust
- Professor Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice, CQC
- Jonathan Fielden, Director of Specialised Commissioning, NHS England
- Sir Malcolm Grant, Chair, NHS England
- Ian Dodge, National Director of Commissioning Strategy, NHS England
Paul Sherriff, NHS Birmingham CrossCity CCG’s Director of Operations and Corporate Development, said: “I am delighted that CrossCity has been shortlisted for three HSJ awards and would like to congratulate both Dr Masood Nazir and Kim Britton, as well as the team behind Your Care Connected which is hosted by CrossCity CCG on behalf of the CCGs in Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull.”
Alastair McLellan, Editor, HSJ, said: “With the NHS experiencing a tough time as funding fails to keep up with demand, the HSJ Awards are once again the best reminder of the excellence the service is capable of. Taken together, the entries to the HSJ Awards represent work which, directly or indirectly, has saved thousands of lives and enhanced many times that number.”
