Health Services Journal and Nursing Times announce the launch of a brand new awards programme; the Care Integration Awards, recognising and rewarding excellence in collaborative clinical practice.

Integration between the primary, community and secondary branches of healthcare in the UK is essential to providing flexible, efficient and responsive services that best meet the needs of patients with long-term conditions.

Excellent projects and initiatives are being employed throughout the country to achieve more integrated care pathways; and these awards are designed to recognise, promote and reward these outstanding efforts.

Enter today to:

  • Demonstrate on a national scale how clinical collaboration is improving your care pathway;
  • Promote best practice and inspire other trusts to further integrate their services;
  • Reward and show appreciation for your hard-working, dedicated staff.

The entry deadline is 23 March 2012. Enter online at
