Two Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust services have been shortlisted as finalists for the prestigious HSJ Value Awards
The HSJ Value Awards recognise excellent use of NHS resources. These awards are given to NHS trusts who have been able to show improvements in outcomes, not just for those who use NHS services, but also across its administrative functions.
Earlier this year Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust submitted a number of entries competing against hundreds of other UK health organisations for these awards. HCT has been advised that two of its entries have now been shortlisted as finalists.
Community Health Service Redesign Award: Therapy Redesign within the Community Adults Health Service (CAHS)
A transformational project to help improve access to occupational therapy and physiotherapy services whilst operating within a reduced financial envelope.
Specialist Service Award: Positive Behaviour, Autism, Learning Disability and Mental Health Service (PALMS)
An initiative which addressed an increase in demand for PALMS’ services, while providing high quality interventions to support more families and children with autism, learning disability and mental health issues.
