Neighbourhood Health Watch Highly Commended at national awards

Neighbourhood Health Watch Highly Commended at national awards

Neighbourhood Health Watch was last week Highly Commended at the HSJ Awards Ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.  The awards are the largest celebration of healthcare excellence in the country and champion innovation and endeavour in over 174 NHS, charitable and independent organisations.

This year saw the largest number of nominations in the awards history with 1305 entries.  For Neighbourhood Health Watch to be shortlisted to receive an award in the Managing Long Term Conditions category is a huge achievement in itself.

Alastair McLellan, Editor of the Health Service Journal said:

“The Neighbourhood Health Watch Project is truly innovative, and fast becoming a Social Movement. Congratulations to all the shortlisted organisations and winners who all deserve to be recognised for their contribution to the sector. This year the awards received a record number of entries from over 500 organisations.

The 2014 HSJ Awards is the largest celebration of healthcare excellence held in this country within living memory. The awards champion innovation and endeavour in over 150 NHS organisations, while the 22 category winners have been chosen by 84 judges working over a total of 500 hours. The NHS is constantly in the news – and often for the wrong reasons – but the HSJ Awards are a powerful reminder of why Britain’s health services are the envy of much of the world”.
