Innovation in local healthcare

Wirral NHS nurses and therapists lead the way in excellence and innovation in local healthcare.

Local Continence Nurses and Speech and Language Therapists have been announced as finalists for two national awards recognising their excellence and innovation in healthcare.

Wirral Community NHS Trust's Continence Service has been shortlisted twice in the Nursing Times Awards category for 'Continence Promotion and Care' for their innovative approach to working with patients who have a catheter. The new way of working that has been developed helps to ensure that Wirral residents do not have to visit hospital unless necessary and instead can receive their treatment at home or in community clinics.

 

The Speech and Language team have been recognised in the 'Improved Partnerships between Health and Local Government' category of the Health Service Journal Awards for their work to improve the awareness and knowledge of language and communication development in young children and to strengthen the links between organisations.

 

Simon Gilby, Chief Executive at Wirral Community NHS Trust said: "It is fantastic to see the high quality, dedicated and innovative work delivered day after day to Wirral residents from our local nurses and therapists recognised by these national awards." He added "Good luck to everyone involved"

 

Winners for the Nursing Times Awards will be announced 30 October and the Health Service Journal Awards on 19 November.
