The drive toward integrated health and care systems is leading to some innovative approaches to care provision in the places and at the times when patients need it. These changes can be initiated by any part of the system from specialised services to primary care. Commissioners of service are playing a vital role as the way services are received evolves and are often be leading a system approach to integrating services.
This award celebrates positive changes in the way patients and service users receive care and are offered more choice in line with their lives. Judges are interested in system or commissioner led projects which have been devised, led and implemented and are now driving results for service users.
This award is open to parts of a system led approach to care. Entries are accepted from CCGs and NHS providers and other public sector health and social care bodies who focus on system led and delivered services.
