Efficiency awards: Efficiency in Commissioning Support Services

The HSJ Efficiency Awards, in association with Health Trust Europe, identify and reward the organisations that have delivered tangible improvements in healthcare efficiency and cost savings, whilst maintaining the highest levels of patient care.

Announcing the winners, HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said: “In this room is the best evidence yet that some NHS organisations and their partners are reconfiguring services and systems in a way that delivers more for less.

“The efficiency revolution - and these awards - is also demonstrating how departments and functions too often given insufficient focus have significant contributions to make.”

Altogether 114 NHS organisations and their partners were shortlisted for the awards, with the eventual winners being announced at the awards evening in London on 25 September.
