Earlier this month we saw four teams and projects across North Central London’s Integrated Care System competing as finalists across six categories at the Burdett Nursing Awards 2023. We concluded the evening celebrating two great wins.
The NCL Learning Hub’s Nurse Education team won the Digital Health award. The award celebrates exceptional nursing teams who are ‘change agents’ in the digital space, delivering positive transformation of patient care using technology. The Nursing Education team’s work was described as an excellent example of the role of nurses in building trust through education and relationships.
The Enfield Integrated Learning Disability Service Community Nurses at Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust also took home a win in the Learning Disability category. Their digital technology pilot project within supported living units and family homes has enabled care staff, families and service users to develop a greater understanding of their health. Additionally, our Pay More Attention Study Team at Great Ormond Street Hospital were runners up in the same category. Both teams were praised for how they continue to challenge health inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities.
In the Supporting Resilience category, the Resilience Based Clinical Supervision programme for North Central London Integrated Care System, hosted by The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with the Foundation of Nursing Studies, were recognised as well-deserving finalists, who had produced innovative strategies and solutions to improve the psychological wellbeing and resilience of nursing colleagues during the pandemic.
Congratulations to all of the winners and finalists across the North Central London Integrated Care System.
