Last chance for healthcare facilities management suppliers to enter the new HSJ Partnership Awards

28 November 2017

Healthcare facilities management suppliers are encouraged to enter the new awards scheme before nominations close on 1 December.

The HSJ Partnership Awards are designed to recognise private sector organisations that work behind the scenes to help the NHS deliver better and more cost-effective patient care.

The unique programme, which has categories for 19 different types of organisations, has been launched by Health Service Journal (HSJ), the premium intelligence and events service for all healthcare leaders working in, for, or with the NHS.

Known as the HSJ Partnership Awards, it will reward inspirational work carried out for the NHS by organisations including facilities management suppliers, architects, builders, IT experts, pharma companies and medtech firms.

A vast range of joint working projects will be eligible for recognition, with projects ranging from the design or construction of a new hospital building, to new analytical data systems, to innovative support ensuring patient drug adherence.

Entrants must be able to demonstrate that their projects have made a tangible difference to the NHS by, for example, improving services, facilities or quality of life for patients, or saving money.

Alastair McLellan, Editor of HSJ, said: “Hundreds of organisations are working behind the scenes to help the NHS improve its services and facilities, and deliver better care for patients. Yet their contribution is often unseen.

“We hope to change that through the HSJ Partnership Awards, which will give companies the chance to showcase the innovative projects and long-term support programmes that are really making a difference to the NHS in these challenging economic times.”

Mark Orchard, Director of Finance at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and President of the Healthcare Financial Management Association, said: “The awards present a unique opportunity to acknowledge the NHS’ valued private sector partners, recognising talent, innovation and demonstrable improvement across the health service.

"The NHS operates in an economic environment that continues to challenge us in demonstrating the very best decision-making on behalf of patients, service users, taxpayers and the public.

“These awards give us the opportunity to recognise those private sector partners who make a significant contribution to the service that we all proudly support.

"I’d encourage all partners to take this opportunity to share innovation and achievement in order that we may both celebrate the very best practice, and also share that learning across the wider health service.”

For details on the individual categories and entry criteria, please log on to www.partnership.hsj.co.uk.

Entries must be submitted by 1 December 2017, with the awards ceremony scheduled to take place at the Royal College of Physicians, London on 8 March 2018.
