PERFORMANCE: Social Enterprise scheme Central Surrey Health has won a national award for best employee idea for service innovation.

Central Surrey Health’s 0-19 team won the “Employee Innovation” category in the 2011 Phillip Baxendale Awards, held in November.

School nurse Felicity Hill and her colleagues were given the freedom to lead a re-design of their enuresis service over the summer.

This ranged from re-writing policies and introducing more useful assessments to centralising admin and putting forms online.

“The result is a quicker, higher quality and more consistent service,” according to Central Surrey Health.

Campbell McDonald, director at the Baxi Partnership, said: “Felicity and the enuresis team are a shining example of how co-owned organisations such as Central Surrey Health can harness innovation to bring about changes to services that really do benefit patients and their families.”

The Phillip Baxendale Awardswere launched in 2007 to recognise excellence in achieving successful employee co-ownership.
