This month, several of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care System (ICS) partner organisations were nominated and won a number of prestigious healthcare awards. Local partners were recognised for their continued hard work and innovation in health and care across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

An overview of these awards and nominations is as follows:

  • Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) won the Clapsticks award for innovation in Human Resources for ‘The Big Shout Out’ Virtual event in the Healthcare People Management Association Awards, the judges said ‘Immensely impressive, a great example of innovation with the simplest of designs. They were particularly impressed by how the Trust demonstrated cross-organisational working; a good framework for evaluation, the replicability and the sustainability approach’.
  • North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare won the ‘Mills and Reeve Award’ for leading on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, the judges said that the entry displayed an ‘outstanding passion and leadership, fantastic metrics showed the level of organisational support and commitment the team had behind them. The level of system leadership was particularly impressive with great outcomes. The Trust is truly leading from the front.’
  • The University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Foundation Trust (UHNM) were finalists for the HPMA Excellence in People Awards for the Browne Jacobson Award for excellence in employee engagement. The Trust’s entry about their democratic redeployment model for doctors was titled ‘No decision about me, without me – our response to enhance employee engagement and was recognised by Judges as a ‘great example of co-creation which generated more positive ownership.’
  •  Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust was highly commended in the Hill Dickinson Education and Learning Development Initiative Award, the judges loved that their clinical fellowship programme was aimed at non-training medical staff who can be a highly isolated group and was multi-disciplinary. They were very impressed that it had been running since 2016 and so was a sustainable initiative that could be replicated in other Trusts.
  • The Inclusion Mental Health Team at Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP) Hewell, One Recovery Bucks Substance Misuse Services and the West Midlands Eating Disorders Collaborative were recognised and highly commended for their services.
