Provision of specialist care in line with patient experience is driving changes in pathways, structures and the way services user interact with their treatment. Innovations and technologies as well as system led care also have an influence over the decision to update or revise a pathway, service or department.
Specialist services such as cancer care, genetic disorders, orthopaedic or children’s services require specific and sometimes expensive adjustments to meet demand. This award will recognise NHS teams or organisations that have successfully made changes to the way in which they deliver services. Judges will be particularly interested in examples of projects which have increased collaborative working between different parts of the health and care service as well as including service users.
This category is open for entries from all NHS teams and organisations delivering specialist services
