The delivery of cardiovascular services to patients is often delivered in specialised settings but there are also new and innovative treatments and pathways. Where and when people receive care has been changing. Bringing patients closer to their care is important in reducing inefficiencies and providing more control. System led approaches have also changed the way treatment has been delivered.
Prevention initiatives working across organisational boundaries especially in terms of population health and working with primary and community environments. Combined these new approaches are adding value to the service, reducing attendance and saving money.
This award will recognise NHS and public sector organisations and local care economies that are making progress on cardiovascular care and prevention. Our judges will be looking for teams who can prove that a change in approach has significantly bolstered the quality of care, and so improved financial value and patient experience. Judges will also be looking for integrated initiatives of prevention and treatment.
Entrants for this award will be any organisation from the NHS, general practice, community and primary care as well as other public sector bodies making things better.
