This award will recognise an eye catching or quirky individual, team or project, which perhaps didn’t quite fulfil all the criteria to reach the shortlist or number one spot of the other awards, but through education and training, has made an outstanding contribution to improving patient and user experience and care.
Jacqueline Swift DL is the independent Chair of the Health Education Wessex Board and will award this honour to the deserving individual, team or project.
Overall themes that the judges will be looking for across all categories, are people and initiatives:
- where workforce development or education and training have made a difference to the quality of services and patient care and service user experience
- who uphold the values of the NHS Constitution; demonstrating care, compassion and respect
- who have worked in partnership across teams, professions and organisations
- which support the development of cultures of learning.
