“The award has highlighted the good work of our Infection Prevention and Control Team, both to staff within our organisation and to our key stakeholders outside, including patient groups, selected officials and the media.”

Peter Jenks, Consultant Microbiologist, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust

As NHS budgets come under increasing pressure it’s vital that excellent practice is identified, replicated and adapted more widely. Not only to increase patient safety, but to reduce the expenditure associated with the management of such incidents.

Recognising the best patient safety initiatives, these awards share essential skills, knowledge and learning across the health service; offering individuals and organisations an invaluable opportunity to increase the profile of their work.
